When assessing wheat for freeze damage, pay close attention to "heaving." Heaving is caused by the frequent freezing and thawing of the ground, resulting in the plants crown and roots being pushed to the surface. Depending on the weather after heaving has occurred, this could greatly reduce stand in many fields; especially in fields that were planted at a shallower depth.
