Molybdenum for the prevention of whiptail in cauliflowers

Molybdenum for the prevention of whiptail in cauliflowers

Jour Dept Agric Western Australia 25: 412-418

"Whiptail" plants are always stunted and are characterized by pale, distorted, ruffled leaves associated with a narrowing of the leaf blades. All affected plants produce inferior flowers which may be small, open and unmarketable, even when the disease is only moderately severe. This disorder has been known for many years in W. Australia. It has been shown to result from a deficiency of Mo. To control whip-tail it is recommended that commercial Na molybdate containing 45% of the effective salt be applied at the rate of 2 lb. per acre.
