Root Rot Hits Beets Yield May Be Lower After surmounting the difficulties of last spring’s wet weather which delayed sugar beet planting, beet growers of this area now are facing the possibility of losses from beet rot. The blight brought on by heavy August rainfall, combined with ex treme heat and humidity, has made its appearance in many fields thru out the sugar beet growing area. Some growers believe their yield may be cut as much as 10 per cent. Fields seem to be affected in spots, according to farm observers, who report that rotting root systems can effectively destroy plants, many of which now have bowls averaging around two younds. There seems to be no cure-all for the blight, as aerating plants at this stage of the season might result in as much damage as that caused by root rot. Another six weeks of good weath er should round, out the crop for harvesting, growers believe, despite late planting. News want ads bring results.
