      On the other hand, cold injury can ruin the crop, and roots without leaf cover are exposed to cold air temperatures, and have lost their method of pulling water up out of the soil. Cold wet soil can quickly rot sweet potatoes (I know, it’s happened here). due to freezing in the root zone. That injury is known as 'winterkill'. The symptoms are leaf discoloration and eventual drop. Such injury can occur within 3 days if the root zone is frozen to a depth of 4 inches, air temperature is below freezing, and strong winds (10 mph or greater) occur. Injury is prevented by a winterAuthor: Carolyn J. DeMoranville.

SPECIES OF ROOT-KNOT NEMATODES Meloidogyne hapla — Northern root-knot nematode This is the most common root-knot nematode found in Illinois and other northern soils. Unlike most other root-knot nematode species, M. hapla withstands freezing temperatures, thereby allowing it to survive cold northern winters outdoors.

    Cover-crops are used. 1. To prevent the loss of soluble plant-food, which occurs when the lands are left uncovered during the late fall and winter; 2. To prevent the galling or surface erosion of hillsides or slopes by winter rains; 3. To prevent root injury by excessive freezing of orchard lands; 4. To supply humus; 5. At freezing temperatures, water in the intercellular spaces of plant tissue freezes first, though the water may remain unfrozen until temperatures drop below −7 °C (19 °F). After the initial formation of intercellular ice, the cells shrink as water is lost to the segregated (unranked): Diaphoretickes. Comparative responses of field grown crops to phosphate concentrations in soil solutions. Production of food plants in areas supplied with highy saline water: problems and prospects. Salt resistance in agricultural crops. Effects of freezing and cold acclimation on membrane structure and function. Cold resistance and injury in winter cereals.

In plants which are not cold tolerant, injury and responses to chilling are typically induced at the range of 10–15 °C.
