Sugar beets in the Netherlands are generally healthy
Thursday, August 10, 2023
The sugar manufacturer [Cosun] reports that beet growers are very alert to controlling foliar fungi. The agricultural service notes that many growers have carried out the first and now also the second spraying. According to Cosun Beet Company, the proper functioning of the warning system ensures that sugar beets are generally healthy in all growing areas. Few yellowing disease infections have been reported and the first cercospora spots were found later this year than in previous years. With a healthy leaf apparatus, the sugar beets can take full advantage of the growing month of August, the agricultural service expects. The sunny weather forecast for the coming weeks is very welcome, after the disappointing amount of sunshine in July. The advice to beet growers is to keep checking weekly for foliar fungi.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
