I have started terrace gardening one year back. I am growing fruit plants ( Sapota, Mango, Orange, Lemon) and vegetables ( Chillies, Spinach, Brinjal, Okra) with some success.
I have used red soil with vermi compost, Neem cake and bio granules. For fruit plants I have used 2x1 feet cement rings stacked ( 2 or 3 rings). I’m facing issues with mango plants.
- Leaves edges are burnt , even new leaves getting burn after some time.
- New twigs are getting similar issues
I cannot see any insects on the leaves. The pots have good drainage and I water once in 2 days. I don’t issue of over watering …
Another thing - I have observed galls on the vegetable roots (okra, tomato). This shows presence of root knot nematodes (RKN) in the soil. I have read in some forum that neem cake keep RKN in control so I regularly add neem cake to plants (once in a month) and I also rotate vegetables with RKN immune ones.
Can anyone please suggest how can I cure mango leave burn.
Is it because of RKN in the soil or some other reasons.
I’m attaching photos of dying mangoes and the ones with few fruits.
