Back when I was a consultant to Kimberly-Clark, I shared greenhouse
space with researchers who were achieving successes in frost protection.
They sprayed tomato plants with ascorbic acid then subjected them to
overnight freezes. That's all I know about it because their vice president
cancelled their funding because their project didn't fit within the
guidelines of the company which is making (Kleenix) tissue, etc. If anyone
wants to continue the research, it is not proprietary information.

Freeze damage is usually caused by ice crystals bursting cells or doing
other damage. I'm just wondering here if anyone knows of any serious
research regarding absorbable sprays or soil amendments that could be taken
up by plants to increase plant cell resistance to freeze damage?
