Title: Effect of Nitrogen and Phosphorus on Percentage of Crown Tissue and Quality of Sugarbeets
Author: Cole, D. F.; Halvorson, A. D.; Hartman, G. P.; Etchevers, J. D.; Moraghan, J. T.
Description: The objectives of this investigation were to determine the effects of nitrogen and phosphorus on the amount of crown tissue produced and quality of sugarbeets IBeta vulgaris L.I grown in the field. Nitrogen and phosphorus significantly increased the percentage of crown tissue produced. Nitrogen significantly lowered sucrose concentration in root and crown tissue. Phosphorus did not affect sucrose in crown tissue, but 80 lbs P/acre significantly lowered sucrose in root tissue. These results suggest that good management of soil fertility can significantly improve sugarbeet quality by reducing the amount of crown tissue produced and by reducing impurities that influence extraction of sucrose.
