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
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.
