dc.description 1987, 75% of sugar beets were stored in large exposed piles for up to 3 months. As sugar beets are living organisms, they continue to live using stored energy from it's own sucrose through it's own respiration. Respiration accounts for 50-60% of the sucrose loss in post harvest. The respiration process is due to several factors. Scalping crops at harvest time furthers this process and may lead to spoilage of stored crops. Different varieties respire at different rates. This article deals describes the development of sugar beet lines with lower respiration. They begin with the selection process. Next, they move into the characteristics of the selected lines. The lines F1007 and F1008 was going to be maintained by the USDA-ARS research group at Fargo ND.
