Good day !

I have interest about injury in frozen plants tissue cause by the cold
weather, and I want to do some questions about this.

There are some formulas about the use of sucrose and trehalose for prevent
the freeze damage to plants like potato, lettuce, celery, carrot and other
verdures and fruits like lemon, orange.

My questions are :

This or similar products (containing sucrose , or maybe with trehalose) are
being used in commercial scale in your country to prevent this freeze
damage from the cold weather in field of crops ? have you heard about this
product ?

Have this products bad effects in the crops ? are they accepted commonly by
farmer ?

Or may be you can to suggest me some scientist or engineer who have worked
directly with this case.

I thank any advice of you  !!!
