hail (  ) on burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type)) - 1440069


Host: burley tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (burley type) L.)
Descriptor: Damage
Description: Hail damage consists of tears in the leaf web and broken leaves and stalks. Damage may vary greatly among fields or within a given field depending on the severity of the weather conditions. Tobacco damaged later than the normal lay-by time is usually handled as a normal crop. Wind can damage leaves or cause partial or complete blowdown. Early topping reduces late season blowdown. Tobacco blown down after topping should be "stood up" or harvested immediately to prevent loss of leaves. Wind damage following water soaking of the leaves from the underside (wind frazzle) can resemble hail injury but differs in that usually no veins are broken.
