How to Grow Beets. Beets belong to the same species as Swiss Chard, so when growing for seed, do not plant both crops at the same time. Beets are tasty and easy to grow, and both the roots and leaves can be used in cooking. Time of Planting. Plant in early spring, as soon as soil can be worked. You can plant successive plantings until midsummer. The sugar beet was grown as a garden vegetable and for fodder long before it was valued for its sugar content.

Napoleon became interested in the process in because the British blockade had cut off the French Empire’s.

A total of 10 beet processors operated 53 factories in 18 states in while nine companies operated only 36 factories in the United States in II. Uses: Sugarbeets are used primarily for production of sucrose, a high energy pure food. Gummerson, RJ () Seed-bed cultivations and sugar-beet seedling emergence. Journal of Agricultural Sciences , – Hadas, A and Russo, D (a) Water uptake by seeds as affected by water stress, capillary conductivity and seed soil contact.
A guide to growing sugar beets. Provides suggestions for field selection, including irrigated fields. Discusses planting, cultivation, and harvesting, as well as uses for beet by-products. A sugar beet is a plant whose root contains a high concentration of sucrose and which is grown commercially for sugar production. In plant breeding it is known as the Altissima cultivar group of the common beet. Together with other beet cultivars, such as beetroot and chard, it belongs to the subspecies Beta vulgaris subsp. vulgaris. Its closest wild relative is the sea beet. In , Russia, .
