Assessing the impact of future climate changes on the UK sugar beet production
(Association of Applied Biologists, 2008)
The impact of climate change on sugarbeet yield in the UK: 1976-2004
Since the 1970s, the delivered sugar yield per hectare has risen at an average annual rate of 0 center dot 111 t/ha, while the sugar yield in the official variety trials has increased at an average annual rate of 0 center ...
Beet growth in 2006
Modelling the variability of UK sugar beet yields under climate change and husbandry adaptations
In the future, UK summers are likely to be warmer and drier. Modelling differential water redistribution and uptake, we assessed the impact of future drier climates on sugar beet yields. Weather was generated for 1961-1990 ...
Using multi-environment sugar beet variety trials to screen for drought tolerance
Drought is a major limitation to sugar beet yield in many rainfed areas. Varieties with increased drought tolerance would improve productivity, but breeding specifically for drought tolerance is time-consuming and expensive. ...
