Leaves on hot chili plant appear curly and smaller. Less amount of fruits produced.

I grow several hot chili plants which produced good quantities of small hot chili last 2 years. This summer, the young leaves coming out always start curly and produce much less fruit than before. Also the leaves are smaller than previous years. I use dynamic lifter pallets as fertiliser and water regularly.
Please tell the reason for this phenomenon. I took a few photos but I cannot attached to the this question.
Regards.

Answer: Hi Chung, Chillies will slow down after their second year and are best treated as an annual plant. Your symptoms also sound like either malnutrition or attack by a sap-sucking insect.
