Fluctuations in Number of Cercospora beticola Conidia in Relationship to Environment and Disease Severity in Sugar Beet
Cercospora leaf spot, caused by Cercospora beticola, is the most damaging foliar disease of sugar beet in Minnesota (MN) and North Dakota (ND). Research was conducted to characterize the temporal progression of aerial ...
A meta-analysis of sugarbeet yield responses to nitrogen fertilizer measured in England since 1980
The data from 161 experiments testing the response of sugarbeet yield to nitrogen fertilizer were assembled in a database. Three commonly used N response models (Mitscherlich, linear plus exponential and bilinear) were ...
Capture and use of solar radiation, water, and nitrogen by sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.)
Sugar beet is spring-sown for sugar production in most sugar beet-growing countries. It is grown as a vegetative crop and it accumulates yield (sugar) from very early in its growth cycle. As long as the sugar beet plants ...
Modification of gibberellin signalling (metabolism & signal transduction) in sugar beet: analysis of potential targets for crop improvement
Sugar beet, Beta vulgaris spp. vulgaris is a biennial long day plant with an obligate requirement for vernalization (prolonged exposure to low temperature). As a spring crop in temperate European climates, it is vulnerable ...
Beet yield response to fertilizer Nitrogen supply and its optimal requirements in the sugar beet crop
(Agra Informa Ltd, 2009-01)
The action of three Beet yellows virus resistance QTLs depends on alleles at a novel genetic locus that controls symptom development
Beet yellows virus (BYV) can dramatically reduce yield from sugar beet crops. A BYV resistant plant from a Beta germplasm accession was crossed with a sugar beet plant to generate the segregating population BYV1. This ...
Cost efficacy in measuring farmland biodiversity : lessons from the Farm Scale Evaluations of GMHT crops
Measuring farmland biodiversity is time-consuming and costly. Operational data from the Farm Scale Evaluation of genetically modified crops project were collated to identify the financial and time costs of each of the 14 ...
