Solution :-

To find out experimentally that a plant shows a deficiency symptom due to one or more than one nutrient or the real deficient mineral element following experiment can be done.

• Every element shows certain characteristic deficiency symptoms in the plants. If an experimental set-up is prepared where several nutrient media is prepared where only one of the essential minerals is missing.

• Also, one control medium is prepared where all the nutrients are present.

• Now, we place a plant in each medium and record the deficiency symptoms according to the missing mineral element.

• This tabular form will work as the standard information regarding the identification of deficiency symptoms.

• Now we have to note down all the symptoms shown by any specific plant and match them with this standard data.

• The similarities found will let us know which is the real mineral nutrient the plant is missing.
