Annual Sugar Beet Research Reporting Sessions Scheduled for Fargo Jan. 13

Top sugar beet researchers from North Dakota State University, the University of Minnesota, Montana State University and Texas A&M AgriLife will give updates on research at the Sugar Beet Research Reporting sessions scheduled for Jan. 13 in Fargo.

Researchers 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.
