Exposure of cucumber seedlings (Cucumis sativus L.) to chilling temperature resulted in injuries such as increased leakage of cellular materials, loss of water and wilting. In addition, the development of the seedlings after the exposure to chilling was impaired. Abscisic acid applied to the seedlings prior to chilling significantly ameliorated these injuries.
