What happens to plants with nitrogen deficiency?

    Plants lacking nitrogen are unable to create what is needed for life and reproduction: DNA, RNA and Proteins.  In plants, DNA and RNA are required for reproduction allowing them to carry the plant’s genes.  Additionally, RNA is needed for the creation of proteins. The proteins are essential for cell growth and repair, and are needed for almost every function within the plant.

    So basically without nitrogen, the plant would not be able to reproduce or create new cells to repair damaged cells.  This would lead to the plants death.  With only a small amount of nitrogen, the plant still would be unable to carry out internal functions sufficiently or efficiently, still leading to death eventually.
