Hi all GP growers! I'm a new GP grower in Northern Ontario and I believe my nutrients are locked up. My leaves are light green/yellow with green veins. I have added Epsom salts with not much improvement. I was thinking it might be a manganese deficiency but without a soil analysis it's hard to tell. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to 'unlock' nutrients?

you need soil test or tissue test. without one you could make it worse

Try some chelated iron. It has helped mine.

I like using humic acid and fulvic acid." It could possibly help some nutrient issues however the tissue test will give you a snap shot of what's going on. Sounds like an mn issues or sulphur or nitrogen. Pictures help.
Might even be a copper issues as well, you could try a micro nutrient blend look on the label for chealated micros .. I rotate threw all major and micro nutrients in my feed program.. weekly
