What can I use to treat this. I have heard of Liquinex Iron and Zinc. Will that work?

Any other products that will work ?

Any Iron chelate that's EDDHA will work better in our soil than the regular iron chelates you find at the stores. Apply it via foliar spray and you'll see results faster.

Anything is good that has those two; citrus are quite adaptable. Personally, If you use the Southern Ag Citrus Nutritional Spray and follow the directions. Reapply according to label and after rain.

You shouldn't be having problems with your citrus being chlorotic. If you are it most likely means you are watering them too often. Only water them once a week in mid summer and every 3 weeks in winter.

I have to change my tune on this one. I know its been years since this post. My citrus really started suffering last summer. They looked yellow and hardly grew. I gave them some nitrogen using fish emulsion 5-1-1, and gave them some iron using eddha and nothing worked. I had some old liquinox with iron and zinc sitting in the garage and tried it. Big change. They are growing much better now. I don't fertilize my citrus much at all and they go for years and are really healthy. However, it seems like eventually they can run out of zinc. Go figure.
