Abstract: Water stress at a nonacclimating temperature (18-20 C) increased the cold hardiness of Medicago sativa L. (alfalfa) plants. This increased cold hardiness was retained when the previously waterstressed plants were cold acclimated (2-9 C) in the absence of water stress. Water stress during cold acclimation also increased cold hardiness. Alfalfa was demonstrated to suffer injury, measured as decreased growth following freezing, at sub-lethal temperatures. During cold acclimation the turgor potential (t//p) of wa…
