Abstract

DURING the summer months, leaves of many plants develop browning and scorching which progresses inwards from the leaf margin or downwards from the leaf tip.

The affected parts become dry and brittle and may break away from the remaining green areas.

Ornamental trees, shrubs and other plants, certain orchard trees and in fact a large number of species may be affected.

Two plants which are very susceptible to this type of injury and are rarely seen without it are the Ioquat tree and the butterfly tree (Bauhinia).
