The article reports on the extent of injury sustained by wheat plants during hard freeze which depends on several factors in Kansas. It cites that the factors that would cause freeze damage include the stage of development of the wheat, the condition of the plants, and the extent and duration of low temperatures. Furthermore, the effects of the factors are summarized by the K-state agronomists including Brian Olson and Jim Shroyer.
