AbstractIron (Fe)-deficiency is a common physiological disorder affecting fruit crops in many areas of the World. Foliar Fefertilisation is a common agricultural strategy to control Fe-deficiency under field conditions. However, variable responses to Fe sprays have often been described and foliar Fe-fertilisation cannot yet be considered a reliable strategy to control plant Fe-deficiency. The lack of understanding of some factors relating to the penetration, distribution, and bio-activity of leaf-applied, Fe-containing solutions hinders the development of effective Fe formulations for foliar treatment. The current state-of-the-art and future perspectives for foliar Fe-fertilisation, as a strategy to control Fe-deficiency in fruit crops, is discussed.
