PP 246: Palm Problems: Field and Laboratory Diagnosis

Figure 1. The feather palm leaf on the left has been sampled correctly for tissue nutrient analysis (middle leaflets are removed). The leaf on the right should not be sampled as all of the leaflets have not fully expanded. Note that the leaflets closest to the petiole base of the leaf are not yet at a right angle to the petiole.
