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. ...
