Brassica carinata is an annual oilseed crop used for the commercial production of jet fuel, animal feed, and valuable chemicals. Carinata has recently been introduced in Georgia as a cool season cash crop with cover crop benefits. Because it is grown in the winter, it has the potential to sustain and recover from frost damage. This publication outlines conditions that can cause frost damage and how the plant will react to this stress.

This publication was written in collaboration with the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension, the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture, and the Southeast Partnership for Advanced Renewables from Carinata.
