Plant Population for Highest Sugarbeet Yield and Quality (05/12/16)

Researchers at North Dakota State University and the University of Minnesota have demonstrated that a wide range of plant population with uniformly spaced plants resulted in high yield and recoverable sucrose, but plant populations of 175 to 200 plants per 100 foot of 22-inch wide rows consistently resulted in the maximum recoverable sucrose per acre. It is critical that the plants be evenly spaced within the rows.
