Category 1: Nutrient Deficiency Symptoms in Crops 
We are looking for examples of nutrient deficiency symptoms in African crops that can provide our readers with a teachable moment. Ideally your images would be supported by a short description of the location and what you saw. If you have any background on how the crop was managed, or any results from the lab, please include that in your description for the benefit of others, and to help our evaluation. Full credit is given to the photographer. If you need help distinguishing the symptoms, you may consult the general reference diagram provided on the contest website. 

Category 2: Plant Nutrition Research in Action 
Our contest’s second category is looking to gather your examples of plant nutrition in action for Africa. We are especially looking for images that depict or describe either: 1) Climate & Weather Smart Plant Nutrition, 2) Soil Health & Improved Livelihoods, or 3) Precision Nutrient Management. Who knows? You may be featured on the next cover of Growing Africa!
