A study was undertaken to determine the causes for chlorosis in alfalfa grown on Wann and Lamoure soils in the Middle Loup Valley. Soil treatments of Mg, Fe, Zn, B, Mn and S were applied to both soils in one experiment. In another experiment, spray applications of ferrous sulfate at different concentrations were used in an attempt to correct chlorotic conditions in alfalfa. At both locations, chlorosis of alfalfa was prevalent early in the season by did not persist, and no effects were obtained in relieving chlorosis either by soil treatments or by spray applications.
