Frost Damage

Frost can cause considerable damage to tobacco, but not as much as the wrong management practices.
Cutting recently damaged tobacco can leave green in the cured leaf producing a highly undesirable product.
 Tobacco that has suffered frost damage should be left standing in the field until the sun has bleached the 
damaged leaf (approximately 4 day).  Tobacco may droop and turn a brownish color, but can cure to an 
acceptable color if managed right.
