sunscald (  ) on burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type)) - 1440068


Host: burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type) L.)
Descriptor: Damage
Description: Sunscald appears initially as a dark green, bruised portion of one or more leaves which later turns brown due to killing of leaf tissue. Wilted leaves exposed bright sunshine during hot weather and succulent tobacco that is undergoing a period of very rapid growth appear to be most susceptible. Shaded portions of wilted leaves that are not directly exposed to the sun tend to recover at night. Any type of injury that causes wilting, such as stink bug feeding, deep cultivation, or water damage, may contribute to sunscald.
