Yellowing of leaves

Ginger    Kenya

My ginger plant is two months old, it started showing yellowing of leaves and even the whole plant, I did topdress with Calcium Ammonium Nitrate and later did NPK folia but I have seen very little improvement. The crop is planted in a black cotton soil. I don't know what is the problem. kindly assist

Dear Esther,
This could be as a result of iron toxicity in the area which limits the uptake of macro nutrients. you can reach for further assistance on how to solve the challenge. you can also chat their support for prompt feedback. https://sabiagrik.com/onion-farming-t...

Sorry for the issue you have with your ginger crop. Since the yellowing is persistent after fertilizing your plants, you probably have a bacterial infection.
I am not sure since further tests are needed.
Could you please take closer pictures and submit using the "Other Crops" section of the mobile application?
Good luck
