cold injury (low temperature)
Host: burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type)
Description: Plant stunting and cupping or strapping of expanding leaves may result from cold injury. The strapped leaves and the bud area usually turn whitish or sometimes yellowish in color and show a restricted portion in leaf width as growth progresses. Plants will suffer less cold injury if covers are applied on the ground with no openings left at the edges. Rips in covers should be mended promptly. No other treatment is suggested since affected plants will resume normal growth after four or five consecutive days of warm weather.
