sandblasting (  ) on flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (flue-cured type)) - 1402065

sandblasting

Host: flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (flue-cured type) L.)
Descriptor: Damage
Description: Windblown sand may cause physical damage to young transplants on the side of the plant toward the prevailing wind. Mild symptoms include some death of tissue between lateral veins of the lower leaves. More severe damage results in entire leaves being killed and stalks being destroyed down to the woody layer. Some plants may be killed and others may be covered by sand. Soil texture and moisture, wind intensity and duration, presence of plant residue on the soil surface, and windbreaks will determine the extent of the damage.
