Title: Sugarbeet Germplasm Selected From the USDA Collection
Author: Campbell, L.G.
Description: This article addresses the consequences of selective breeding narrowing down the genetic diversity of sugar beet crops. The reasoning behind selective breeding attempting to produce those sugar beet lines with superior processing qualities is addressed. This narrowing resulted in reduced crop yields and lowered sucrose levels. Advancements in technology aided in the improvement of higher extractible sucrose content
