I am growing corn in Hawaii, and something is wrong with some of my stalks. Some are tall and healthy and others are short and sickly looking. The leaves of the sick plants are striped along the length of the leaves, like some sort of deficiency. The type of corn is UH Manoa corn, the soil is N acid low PK, fertilizer used was 10-7-7 (dont have time to test soil). Can you help identify whats wrong?

Welcome to ATP!
I know less than nothing about corn, sorry. But there are many folks around who might be able to help.
If you can provide pictures it would make identifying the problem much easier and more accurate.

Welcome! from me too!

I don't know a thing about growing corn either so hopefully someone familiar with corn crops will pop in with suggestions soon.

I did find this information when googling: http://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/oc/freepubs/pdf/HGV-4.pdf

and scroll down this page for more information: http://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/fb/sweetcor/sweetcor.htm#Disease...
