Sun scald

From Appropedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Sun scald occurs to plants when damage occurs to plants as a result of radiant heat. Plants can be most vulnerable to tissue damage from radiant heat when they are frozen, newly emergent, suddenly exposed to sunlight.

Leaves, stems, bark, fruit and flowers can be sun scalded.

High summer temperatures or extreme winter cold (sun on a frozen plant) can result in sun scald.
