Chinese cabbage turning light green with transparent spots

Cabbage (red, white, Savoy)    None Given

I have 20 new Chinese cabbage crop and they have turned light green and started getting these white transparent spots on them. Is it a disease or a nutrition problem and how do i fix it?

Thanks

The brown speckling on the lesions suggests that there is an insect pest feeding on the leaves. The pest may be tiny and hard to spot e.g. thrips. I'd suggest closely inspecting the leaves of all your plants - undersides as well to see if you can confirm.

I would use fresh soil, many insects will complete part of their life cycle in the soil so you may end up with another infestation.
