drowning (  ) on burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type)) - 1440065


Host: burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type) L.)
Descriptor: Damage
Description: Tobacco is very susceptible to water damage by flooding. Exposure to waterlogged soils for extended periods of time will cause the leaves to droop, turn yellow, and eventually die while the bud may remain green. Removal of the outer surface of the stalk will reveal discolored tissue. All degrees of injury may occur from complete root destruction to killing of only a few of the deeper roots. Apparent injury may be more severe on older plants than on young plants. Partial drowning may result in shallow root systems, stunted plants, and premature flowering.
