- ... The beet armyworm, Spodoptera exigua, is freeze-susceptible, in which glycerol plays a crucial role in depressing supercooling point (SCP) to avoid the freezing injury. This study focused on a non-freezing injury classified into indirect chilling injury of S. exigua after a prolonged exposure to low temperatures much above SCPs. Exposure to 0 and 5°C for longer than 2weeks was lethal to all the im ...
