Sugarbeet Research Reporting Session scheduled

Sugar beet researchers will provide updates during the 50th annual Sugarbeet Research Reporting Session scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 14, starting at 7:45 a.m. at the Holiday Inn in Fargo.

Extension and research specialists from NDSU, the University of Minnesota and the U.S. Department of Agriculture will address methods for controlling insects, diseases and weeds; strategies for managing glyphosate-resistant weeds; and pathogens that develop resistance to fungicides or overcome host resistance.

“Each year the Sugarbeet Research and Education Board of Minnesota and North Dakota provides generous funding to support sugar beet research and Extension education programming for area sugar beet growers,” said Mohamed Khan, NDSU and University of Minnesota Extension sugar beet specialist. “This session allows researchers to discuss their findings with growers looking for the latest information.”

Registration is not required and the event is open to everyone interested in sugar beet research.

Lunch will be provided by Sumitomo Corp., and continuing education credits will be available for certified crop advisers.
