Medium_coffee1 Coffee Trees - nutrient deficiency? Help !

Hi Guys, looking for some suggestions as to what nutrient is lacking in a few of my young coffee trees.. New growth at the top is very small, even undeveloped fully, leaving small, spindly shoots/leaves, and leaf edges burned on the next row down. It seems there is almost too much new growth 'trying ' to happen, and it looks all crowded and bunched. From the small amount I've researched, it could be perhaps a Boron deficiency?

Answer: It can be tricky sometimes to get the right nutrients into a plant. It looks like you have a nutrient deficiency and yes it could be boron but it may also be iron. Apply some Yates Health Tonic Trace Elements Chelates. This product contains a wide range of micro nutrients that you plant needs, and it will correct this problem in no time.
