The plant is very thirsty and wilts easily in dry spells. Roots have shriveled skins, feeling as though they are loose around the core of the root. Very dry; yellow with a brown core.

In cereals, the leaves turn purplish, legumes become bluish green and stunted. Most plants, however, turn dark green with red or purple tints. Generally all diseases where the plants show watery cells and their concomitant problems. Leaves may brown around edges, or they may yellow and fall.
