To report on experiments on foliar iron sprays to overcome deficiency in field pea.

Key messages
  • Iron deficiency is common on rendzinas, peats and coastal calcareous sands in the south east of South Australia .
  • Symptoms of deficiency are much greater in wetter than dry years when little deficiency is apparent.
  • In field pea the symptoms show up at about the fourth or sixth node stage when the young leaves and growing tip become yellow.
  • Soluble ferrous sulphate should be sprayed on to peas at the onset of symptoms.
