SS-AGR-420: Frost Damage of Carinata Grown in the Southeastern US

Figure 5. Freeze damage at bolting can cause stem damage, including splitting and/or hollowing of the stem, typically within several inches of the soil surface. Lodging often results, but the plant may continue to grow. In severe cases, regrowth will occur at the crown. UF/IFAS West Florida Research and Education Center, Jay, FL.
