Oats grown on the acid peaty sands of the West and South Coastal areas of Western Australia develop iron deficiency.
This deficiency can be cured by spraying with iron sulphate. A 2 to 4 per cent, solution can be applied through a low volume spray without damage to the plants. The spray should be repeated when deficiency symptoms reappear.
Growing oats on these soils is not recommended.
