Base on the youtube video link https://youtu.be/KjRou-9REvQ that shows a lemon tree leaf with tiny holes with careful observation the contestant should submit a article in 3000 words or less (font size 12 single space). On how a plant leaf is genetically program to response to an infestation. We looking for how plants response to an infestation due to environmental stress and leaf often turn green to yellow to brown to black depend on the degree of stress levels. Most points will be awarded to person who able to explain the plant response by observing the color change from green to yellow to brown to dark brown to black. There are multi-facet reason as to why the plant leaves turn brown we like to focus on precision where exact roles and transport of Sodium and Potassium in Plants is clearly articulated with timing example higher stress may speed up the process while low stress thresold may take a longer time for plant to display color change. Specially when it comes responding of the plant leaves to an infestation. The goal is to be able to understand mechanism by which the plant leaves response to stress. Here is the link if you wish to become more familiar with Sodium and Potassium roles in the plant https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/26860305/
