Palm Trees frequently suffer from improper mineral nutrition in the landscape. Some of the nutritional deficiencies of palm trees are nitrogen (N), potassium (K), magnesium (Mg) and manganese (Mn).
Other essential nutrients such as boron (B), calcium (Ca), copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) are occasionally found to be deficient if they are not present in the fertilizers applied, but these deficiencies are not very common in the landscape.
Nutrient deficiencies can be caused by insufficient nutrients in the soil, a nutrient imbalance, poor soil aeration, a high soil pH and an excessive planting depth. Here are related articles that go into more details:
