That is an outstanding field of corn! Interesting, though, how the frost did it. I guess it was too thick for it to get any farther down the stalk.

Green corn will emit heat at night most likely kept the lower areas where more dense above freezing. Interesting physics though as cold air is more dense and typically closer to the ground.

Usually when tops are frosted off like that it means it was a clear still night. The radiant heat loss (exposure) to a clear sky can allow freezing with the air temp just a bit above freezing. The leaves on top "shade" the bottom material from the radiant heat loss.

Next clear still night stand and face the face and try to feel how cold your cheeks are. Then go stand in a car port where the air is the same temp but face the roof. You can usually feel the difference easily. If not grab your flir camera and it will show you.

If there is much wind the air movement will keep the plants from freezing from exposure.
