In Southern Alberta and in much of the North American the yellowing is most prevalent in areas where soils have a high lime content. Most fruit plants and many ornamental particularly members of the rose are very susceptible to the disorder. Spraying the foliage ot affected plants with a dilute solution of iron compounds will restore the green color but the sprays must be repeated during the growing season Most attempts to control chlorosis by injecting iron compounds into the or branches have been unsuccessful additions of iron filings to th'e soil and driving iron nails into plant stems have not been effective. The Lethbridge Research Station tested a series of organic chemicals known as 'iron chelates' for foliage sprays and as soil amendments. All of these when used as foliage were effective in restoring green color temporarily.
