Mark allow your humble servant to give my penny opinion. I just finished looking at my tissue analysis of leaves with similar expression and I have from 8000 to 11000 ppm of Cl and Mg. Is the Cl in fumigated block attaching to what ever methane that is being produced by organic matter degradation in the soil? um um um. All of my tissue samples are very high in Cl (organic and TO blocks) NaCl burn starting to surface more prominently.

Open to all opinions Lorenzo. Mg in these samples is normal, kicking myself that I didn't measure chloride-I'll let Cliff know the next time. Soil is pretty sandy though, so the OM is not going to be that high.  
The real point of this post, when all is said and done, is that the the transition from methyl bromide is going to be fraught with questions like these, be it what I suggest a compromised root capacity leading to insufficiencies in macronutrients other than N or what you suggest on the chloride and other salts. It's a whole new world. Thanks again for commenting!
