9. Glyphosate products are formulated in many different acid-equivalent concentrations. In the Western United States, where seed production of sugar beets, swiss chard and table beets are all produced, cross-pollination is a concern. Sugar beet treated with a pesticide not registered for sugar beet may have an illegal residue which, if detected, could cause condemnation of the crop. Annual grass and broadleaves: 1 to 2 inches, B. Perennial grass and broadleaf weeds: early bud/boot stage to early flowering or in the fall at a minimum-sized plant, C. Biennial weed species: fall, after a light frost. All three crops are the same species, and therefore sexually compatible. Managing N Throughout the Rotation Using Precision Agriculture Techniques. Apply between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., especially if velvetleaf, common or giant ragweed are present in the field. Apply Roundup* in tank mixtures for waterhemp, kochia and ragweed control. 5. West Coast Beet Seed (WCBS) is jointly owned by a group of sugarbeet seed and sugar companies (American Crystal Sugar Co, Hilleshög, and SESVanderHave). When starting out in the field, monitor seed discs to ensure seed is staying on the plate. Production of high-quality sugar is especially important to growers who are paid based on extractable sugar delivered to the factories. During periods of regular rainfall, shorten the application interval to 10 to 12 days. A few basic steps in preparation for insecticide applications can increase the probability of accuracy, effectiveness and economical use of these products. The typical planting arrangement has a series of 4 row pollinator (male) strips adjacent to 8 to 16 row female strips. Application Intervals: Generally, the application interval for most of the fungicides recommended is 14 days. Replace worn seals. Check for missing insecticide spoons or banders. A rotation of 5 different crops between sugarbeet seed production is used, to ensure trait purity. In high-risk situations, select approved varieties that are less susceptible than the average. Apply at a 5- to 10-GPA spray volume when applying alone or in combination with another systemic herbicide. Use AMS replacements or water-conditioning agents at the equivalent rate of 8.5 lb/100 gal. The female plant (right side) has monogerm flowers (produce one germ per seed) which will produce only one plant per seed when planted by the grower. Increase the glyphosate rate to the highest single application rate and use a high-surfactant methylated oil concentrate (HSMOC) adjuvant when tank-mixing with a contact herbicide. To avoid future development of insecticide-resistant root maggot strains, rotation to a different active ingredient or even a different chemical class is advised. **Use the Olsen P test on soils with pH greater than 7. *Photos courtesy of West Coast Beet Seed Company. NIS is less effective with oil-soluble herbicides. These insects migrate into our region as moths during the spring and are capable of multiple generations within a single growing season. Commercial seed treaters apply Tachigaren to sugarbeet seeds. (the Belgian Sugar Beet Seed Company - Société Belge de Graine de Betterave Sucrière). In all other counties of North Dakota, allow an 18-month rotation restriction before planting barley. NDSU Entomology will continue to inform growers regarding SBRM activity levels and hot spots each year through radio reports, the NDSU “Crop & Pest Report” and notification of sugar cooperative agricultural staff when appropriate. Annual grass species: 0.77 to 0.84 lb ae/A, B. The root often is constricted and the vascular tissues become discolored. Wheat and barley can be planted 4 MAA following lentils or soybeans. Tin fungicides plus sugarbeet herbicides, including Roundup* may cause more sugarbeet leaf burn than the tin fungicides alone. (The slightly lighter green 4 rows of plants in the center of the photo is one pollinator strip. Stock seed productions often are grown in plots from 0.1 to 5 acres and need isolation from commercial productions and other stock seed productions. Wear protective clothing and masks as directed. Use acid- equivalent rates of glyphosate when comparing formulations to be confident of applying the correct product rate. 10. When conditions favor disease or disease already is prevalent, fungicide applications must be more frequent than when disease pressure is low. Seed companies clean, grade, size, treat and prepare the seed into pellets for planting. Commercial sugar beet seed production was initiated in France around 1810 by the firm Vilmorin. Severe injury can kill seedlings and cause major stand reductions or result in smaller, sprangled, bulb-shaped roots at harvest. To trigger flowering, the plant needs a cold period known as vernalisation. Replace “wipers” and knock-out wheels. Cercospora can cause losses in susceptible varieties through reduced tonnage, reduced sucrose content, increased impurities and poorer storage after harvest when the roots are in piles. Therefore, if one of these products was applied at initial planting, another labeled material must be used for re-planting or at postemergence. As the disease progresses, younger leaves also become chlorotic, and the older, symptomatic leaves become necrotic. After planting of stecklings, an early irrigation is done. Other products may be labeled but do not provide effective control of R. solani. Refer to label if higher rates are used. A large part of industrial beet sugar production involves removing minerals and impurities from the sugar water. Apply during conditions when plants are growing actively and avoid fluctuation in temperature. 8. Appropriate isolation may be several miles from the nearest commercial seed production field. 36-cell plates with the appropriate hole diameter will work, although increased plate turning speed may require higher vacuum levels to avoid seed falling off the plate. Timing of herbicide application is extremely important for maximizing weed control and recoverable sucrose per acre. Feel free to use and share this content, but please do so under the conditions of our, www.ndsu.edu/fileadmin/soils/pdfs/Fertilizing_Sugarbeet_In_North_dakota.pdf, www.ndsu.edu/entomology/people/faculty/boetel/flycounts. Apply over small, actively growing annual weeds and at the appropriate stage for perennial weeds. Crop rotation after atrazine* is rate and soil pH dependent. For applications to summer annual or spring applications to perennial weed species, do not apply if the daytime low temperature is below 38 F and the daytime temperature does not exceed 45 to 50 F. 5. Tolerance was detected in fields where control was not as good as expected. Darksided and redbacked cutworms are the most common cutworm pests of sugarbeets in the Red River Valley. This amount is needed regardless of the quantity of residual soil nitrogen found below 2 feet. Such tolerance is difficult to distinguish from inadequate application techniques or a late start in application. Do not tank-mix foliar fertilizers unless necessary. Use shallow depths for earlier planting. If optimal timing is in question, erring toward applying granules early is advisable. North Dakota statewide number: 800-732-2200, Fargo Poison Control number: 701-234-5575. Among their concerns is that GMO sugarbeets could harm the organic seed industry by contaminating chard and table beet seed production. 11. Seed Production U.S. Production Manager Joe Bristol inspecting stecks in Oregon seed production. They are a climbing cutworm species that primarily feeds in the plant canopy during evening hours. j Requires 15 inches of cumulative precipitation during the growing season following application. N/A for 2-foot depth soil sample. Calibrate starter and/or fungicide application systems. 3. Do not allow the preharvest interval (PHI) to be an excuse for missing an application late in the season. Examples include Asana XL, carbaryl (Sevin XLR Plus and several generic products), Lannate LV and Lannate SP. Complete coded variety trial results for American Crystal Sugar Co. and Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative are available in the Sugarbeet Research and Extension Reports (www.sbreb.org). Do not stack them on top of each other; use original boxes for storage. This population should produce very good yields of high-quality sugarbeets. Our breeders, multiplication technicians, seed technologists and production people all work closely together as a team to achieve the best possible quality seed. Using plates smaller than recommended may result in seed falling off the plate when the planter bounces in the field. 13. In case of accidental poisoning, call a physician or take the patient to a hospital immediately. Rotation to potatoes is: 9 months: soil pH greater than 6.2 and rainfall is greater than 18 inches/year or 18 months: soil pH less       than 6.2 and rainfall is less than 18 inches/year. Liquid foliar insecticide and/or fungicide tank mixes do not antagonize grass or broadleaf weed control from Roundup* and are efficacious against insects and diseases, according to research conducted at NDSU. Much of the work is done by hand including rogueing to remove undesirable and off type plants. The Coded Variety Trial provides an excellent comparison of the performance of varieties in this area. 2. 3. Use chemicals only on crops specified and at the correct rate and schedule. Once the pre-commercial seed meets all of the quality requirements it is prepared for commercial production. n Dry beans can be planted after nine months at Armezon/Impact rates of 0.5 fl oz/A or less. See publication PP967 for more information on powdery mildew. An 18-month restriction applies to Prequel and  rimsulfuron* applied above rates indicated or if drought follows application. Tarnished plant bugs, commonly referred to as Lygus bugs, occasionally have caused late-season injury to Red River Valley sugarbeet fields since the late 1990s. Continue reading continue reading. The foundations of SES Europe were laid in 1948 with the creation of S.B.G.B. 1. 1. Black cutworms in late-season infestations often feed more than 2 inches below ground. Research Institution. Chastain photo) A coalition of environmental and organic agriculture groups has been fighting the introduction and growing of GMO sugarbeets in the Willamette Valley for several years. Cutworms can be found within 2 inches of the soil surface near bases of wilting plants. Bacterial leaf spot may develop in wet weather; no fungicide is registered for its control. Test the planter on a hard surface to check the seed distribution pattern. If fields are too wet, nursery is undercut and beets are pulled, topped and trimmed by hand. 3. 3. • Place granules in 5-inch bands over the row or deliver via “spoon” applicator. Any grower in an area with a history of SBRM problems should pay close attention to fly activity levels in late May through June to decide if postemergence treatment is needed. This causes skips and lower than desired population readings on the monitor. In areas where moderate to high root maggot infestations are common, additive plant protection may be needed for adequate SBRM control, especially if an insecticidal seed treatment or a low rate of a planting-time insecticide was used for at-plant protection. Quadris (azoxystrobin), including generics such as Aframe, Satori and AZteroid, and Xanthion (pyraclostrobin+ Bacillus spp.)) When the plant has 4 to 8 leaves, thinning, by hand or by machine, is frequently needed to space 3 to 6 beets per metre row. Land Grant. - CruiserMaxx, NipsIt Inside and Poncho Beta seed treatments also provide good springtail control. If the incompatible tank mixture is applied over the crop, an uneven spray distribution may occur and result in unacceptable performance. Mild winters, low disease pressure and dry harvest weather makes the area desirable for growing seed. Forecasts and updates on these events will be provided to growers, county Extension personnel, sugar cooperative agricultural staff and other agricultural professionals by using various media outlets. Stressed sugarbeet plants appear to be more susceptible to Alternaria, and some sugarbeet varieties are more susceptible than others. Seedex, Inc. is a member of West Coast Beet Seed Company (WCBSC), Salem, OR, a non-profit owned by the majority of the world’s beet seed companies. Fields are ready to harvest in late July to early August. Quadris plus Roundup* (water- based) is safe to sugarbeets when applied without NIS or other oil adjuvants. Plastic plates turn harder than steel, so lubricate the plate, false ring and hopper bottom lightly with talc. Sensitive isolates do not grow at all in the presence of 5 ppm of benzimidazole fungicide. Seeding rates are from 10-15 lb. Herbicide residue or the persistence of phytotoxic levels of a herbicide for more than one year can be a problem with some of the herbicides used in North Dakota and Minnesota. Control may be justified for late-season infestations of three to five larvae per square foot if they are feeding near or above the soil surface. v Do not include time when soil is frozen. Insecticides Labeled for Controlling Insect Pests in Sugarbeets. Common starter phosphorus fertilizer sources and maximum amounts suggested for seed application. A gene conditions fasciation of flower stalk. 12. Infection of mature plants may not cause death, but the disease causes significant reduction in root yield and recoverable sucrose. In an effort to reduce the amount going in to my test batches, I chose to skin the beets and remove any parts of the beet that were brown on the interior. • 65 lb./acre of nitrogen is required in the 0- to 2-foot soil depth to maximize early season crop growth, yield and quality. 8. Eggs of both species hatch into larvae during late May and early June. In a large-tank central delivery system, remove the fuse that controls agitation in the tank. Singulators should be adjusted properly to the percentage of the hole showing and lubricated to work very freely. The planter has no agitation in the large tank; to compensate, use pure graphite or a graphite/talc blend. Broadcast application is not as effective as band application under moderate to heavy disease pressure. In 1747, Andreas Marggraf isolated sugar from beetroots and found them at concentrations of 1.3–1.6%. Guidelines for Adjusting Nitrogen Recommended for Crops Following Sugar Beet. Soil sample parts of fields where beets were abandoned in 2012 separately from the rest of the field in the fall of 2013, nutrient differences are likely to occur. Sugar beets are also evaluated for resistance to mildew, resistance to curly top, beet yield, sucrose content, pulp nitrate, and pulp conductivity. 10. Planting-time granular insecticides are important tools for managing sugarbeet root maggots in the Red River Valley. Before installing new plates, clean out obstructions by hand with a 1/16 inch drill bit. The rainfall effect also can vary depending on rainfall amount and intensity. Physical incompatibility may occur with herbicide, insecticide and/or fungicide tank mixtures and will result in the formulation of gels, creams, oil scums or other precipitates that may or may not be sprayable. 12. Plant densities under commercial production vary from 40 000 up to 100 000 plants/ha. 1. 7. Do not plant lentils, potatoes or any other broadleaf crops grown for seed for 18 months unless the      risk of injury is acceptable. Use shims to obtain the proper air gap between the plant and meter. Management of Cercospora requires an integrated approach that includes early incorporation of infected debris, crop rotation, the use of varieties that are less susceptible, disease scouting, timely application of fungicide, adherence to appropriate application intervals and more frequent applications when environmental conditions are favorable for disease development. COMMERCIAL PRODUCTION OF SUGARBEET SEED. The Willamette Valley is the primary source for sugarbeet seed used in North America. 2. Be sure row spacings are correct and equal, and row markers are adjusted. The stecks are moved into commercial fields (typically 10 to 50 acres) in Jan to Mar. Moldboard plowing reduces phytotoxicity of some herbicides by diluting the herbicide residue in a large volume of soil and by providing untreated surface soil in which sugarbeets can germinate and begin growing. Added benefits of cover crops include soil stabilization, protection of beet seedlings from mechanical wind injury and reduced abrasion from wind-blown soil. About 10 years later breeding acti vities including mass selection Early planting allows for larger beet roots during the period of peak SBRM feeding activity (mid-June to mid- July). Lower residual N levels can be achieved prior to sugarbeets through a rotation managed with precision ag techniques. It is wind-pollinated and pollen can travel up to 20 km. This region typically accounts for about one-eighth of national planted area. A planting speed of 4 miles per hour is recommended for conventional planters and 6 to 8 mph If winds are too high (20+ mph), discontinue planting until winds diminish. Variety trials contain experimental lines to evaluate their adaptation, productivity and quality in this area. In North Dakota, ND 1 refers to soil with a smectite/illite ratio less than 3.5; ND 2 refers to soil with a smectite/illite ratio greater than 3.5. Wind is a perennial challenge to making effective insecticide applications in the Red River Valley. Use maximum Roundup* rates, even in fields with weeds with low-level resistant biotypes because 1- to 2-inch weeds are easier to kill than 3- to 4-inch weeds, and dead weeds cannot produce resistant progeny. Pursuit = 40-month rotation + successful field bioassay. The plate should turn easily by hand. Sugar beet seed should be planted between 1/2 inch and 1 inch in depth. Roots of smaller, late-planted beets are more vulnerable to feeding injury. Preparation for planting should include serious attention to the following: • unrestricted, consistent flow of granules, • even distribution of granules over the row. Inclusion of all label details in the “Sugar Beet Production Guide” is not possible and labels sometimes are modified after the annual guide’s printing is completed. We specialize in every aspect of sugar beet seed production, from the development of new and more resistant varieties right through to the final blue seeds. For Verdict: Fall-seeded cereals can be planted    four months after application. Apply at a 15- to 40-GPA spray volume when applying in combination with a contact herbicide or when weeds are tall and dense. Since 2009, the nation's sugar beet crop has been almost entirely planted in seed genetically modified to resist glyphosate herbicide, which is produced at Bayer's Soda Springs plant in Idaho. Sugarbeets treated with a nonregistered herbicide may have an illegal residue which, if detected, could cause condemnation of the crop. High soil moisture and warm temperatures will favor the vector to transmit BNYVV into plants because they infect roots. Choose grid soil sampling if field history is unknown, if fertility is high, when the field has a history of manure applications, when two or more fields are merged or if phosphate levels are particularly important. 4. Roundup* can (and should) be tank mixed with herbicides to improve control of tough-to-control weeds in “RR” sugarbeets. • Treat slightly (two to four days) before peak fly activity occurs in the current-year beet field. Applying greater than 5 pounds per acre of N+K2O in contact with the seed can reduce plant stand emergence. Mouse-proof seed tubes (place fabric softener sheets in seed hoppers). Growing the Beets. Tank-mixes providing effective weed control in the field across crops in sequence with sugarbeets, including corn, soybeans and wheat, is the most effective weed management strategy for control of tough weeds, including glyphosate-resistant biotypes. The following table summarizes recent broadcast and banded P research results: Guidelines for Sugarbeet Fertilization With P. Following the above guidelines for the use of fertilizer P should address issues of fertilizer input savings with the use of banded P and maintenance of soil test P important to other rotational crops. Consideration of a few factors can help decide whether a postemergence insecticide is needed. Most herbicides applied with glyphosate are oil-soluble. Sugarbeet Research and Education Board of Minnesota and North Dakota www.sbreb.org. Release tension on press wheel springs. The following insecticides should protect sugarbeets from wireworm injury. The systemic fungicide thiophanate methyl (benzimidazole) has federal registration for Cercospora control and is in the benzimidazole class of fungicides. 3. The pollen shedding plants (planted in 4 row strips) often are removed as soon as pollination of the female strips is completed. Adjust the vacuum as necessary. Using a rotary hoe or field harrow across beet rows in June following egg deposition can help reduce maggot numbers. They range from yellowish white to bright or deep copper hues. Sensitive strains do not grow at all when subjected to these levels of TPTH, but tolerant strains grow at a reduced rate, compared with growth in the absence of TPTH. Learn how to … Increasing spray volume and offsetting (perpendicular to first application is ideal) subsequent applications can decrease the inactivation of glyphosate caused by dust. These treatments should be sufficient if adequate soil moisture prevails after planting. 4. • Do not reduce N in zones within sugarbeet fields with yellow foliage. The crop will be in the ground for 12 months. Rain following the application can enhance the performance of foliar insecticides that also have activity against larvae in the soil (for example., chlorpyrifos-containing liquid products such as Lorsban Advanced and Lorsban 4E). To maximize performance, apply it: • Directly in-furrow at planting using conventional nozzles (not microtubes), • At full rate of 4 oz. Nonregistered herbicide use is illegal, and a user could be subject to a heavy fine, even without detectable residue. The terms “resistance” and “tolerance” often are used interchangeably. Powdery Mildew Control: Mixtures of triazoles (DMIs) or QoIs and sulfur fungicides will provide effective control. Seed rates vary between 12 and 30kg/ha. All pesticide use suggestions are based on the assumption that all chemicals will continue to have a registered label with the Environmental Protection Agency. Cover crops provide a dense plant canopy and the shading helps keep soils moist. Moderate application rates of labeled soil insecticides are recommended in areas where correspondingly moderate SBRM infestation levels are expected. Sugarbeet fields in 10- to 14-leaf stages of development or those with an established canopy are generally large enough to withstand moderate levels of feeding. Excessive dew on plant foliage at application may reduce weed control by diluting droplet concentration. * Subtract the amount of NO3-N in the top 2 feet of soil or top 4 feet of soil from these figures to determine the amount of N fertilizer to apply. These same herbicides could occur in mixtures under different brand names. The severity of Cercospora varies from year to year, depending on weather conditions, inoculum potential and varietal resistance. Injury tends to increase as the temperature and humidity at application increases. Soil at 7.5 pH or above requires crop rotation to be extended from nine or 10 months to 17 or 18 months and from 17 or 18 months to 24 months. Best to buy with Plate 4025 because it plants seed from all companies. In general, annual grass and broadleaf control from Roundup* will not be antagonized by tank mix partners, provided Roundup* is applied at full rates. Some herbicides, such as Pursuit, Python and Raptor, carry over more in low pH soils, while other herbicides, such as the sulfonylureas Accent, Ally, Beacon and Classic, carry over more in high pH soils. If rain is likely five to seven days before peak fly activity, the application should be made before the expected rain. In fields with early season abiotic stress, susceptible varieties are more prone to infection and may lead to complete destruction. As a result of problems with the production, quality, and supply of sugarbeet seeds after WWII, Belgian sugar manufacturers needed to set up their own seed company. A. In storage, the quality of infected roots may deteriorate more rapidly, compared with non-infected roots. Suggestions in this guide are based on the assumption that insecticides listed herein will have registration for the suggested use in the current production season. Russia leads worldwide production of sugarbeets with nearly 8,500,000 acres followed by Poland, France, West Germany and Turkey with about 1,000,000 acres each. Fields that had grassy weed escapes during the preceding season also are at risk. Swathing is done best during periods of high humidity, often at night, to reduce shattering. Do not use this publication after Dec. 31, 2020. Piles can be as large as 20 feet tall by 180 feet wide by several hundred feet long. During World War I and II, the supply of seed from Europe was insufficient, which required seed companies to find a growing area in North America. 2. However, the user must assume liability for any resulting crop injury, inadequate weed control, or illegal and/or harmful residues. Springtails that damage Red River Valley beet fields are tiny (1/32 to 3/32 inch long), wingless, white to cream-colored insects with fleshy, forward-pointed antennae. Tachigaren can be used at 20 to 30 grams per unit (100,000) of seed on minimum buildup pelleted seed or 45 to 90 grams per unit of seed on standard pelleted seed. Herbicides no longer registered or that have not yet received registration for sugarbeets should not be used. We recommend that on low- to medium-testing soils, P fertilizer be applied before the deepest tillage operation. The Bray test is not recommended in North Dakota. 10 MAA rotation interval applies to all dry bean types except red kidney and cranberry (18 MAA). For example, other herbicides, insecticides and/or fungicides combined with Roundup* are formulated with surfactants that may increase the potential for sugarbeet injury. The rate of 20 to 30 grams of Tachigaren is recommended on fields with light to medium disease pressure. Requires 24 inches of accumulated precipitation. Manipulation (clipping) of some plants may be done to facilitate matching (nicking) of flowering time between the male and female plants. A planting speed of 4 miles per hour is recommended for conventional planters and 6 to 8 mph for high-speed planters. See Page 5. Seed may bounce off the monitor eye assembly if it is twisted slightly out of position. w CRP grasses may be planted 13 MAA, but a field bioassay must be performed prior to planting CRP grasses. 5. 6. nitrogen per acre (N/A) for 4-foot depth soil sample or 80 lb. Do not use glyphosate with suspension-type liquid fertilizers. z For rotation to field peas in 10.5 months, precipitation must be greater than 7 inches during the 10.5 months following application and greater than 5.5 inches of precipitation from June 1 to Aug. 31 following application. In severely infested fields, plant resistant varieties early, avoid “hilling” soil on sugarbeet crowns, increase the length of rotation and rotate with nonhost crops such as small grains. Soil moisture - Good soil moisture enhances the effectiveness of planting-time granular insecticides. All pesticide users should read and understand the pesticide label prior to pesticide use. Two to three generations can develop during a single growing season in the Red River Valley. Growers anticipating SBRM problems should consider the following management recommendations: • Apply a granular insecticide application at planting. He also demonstrated that the sugar that could be extracted from beets was identical to that produced from cane. 14. 1. Identify glyphosate-resistant biotypes early (few plants/field) and remove surviving plants from field by hand-pulling. If the soil surface is wet or crusted, drag chains may not sufficiently incorporate the insecticide. The majority of commercial seed is produced through the transplant method where seed, supplied by member seed companies, is planted in beds for four months to produce stecks (small beets). a  Refer to label - rotation restriction may be adjusted based on herbicide rate, rainfall, tillage, soil type, soil pH and bioassay. 3. Postemergence granules work best under moist soil conditions, and liquids work better than granules in dry soils. Conversely, varieties that are more susceptible than the average may need extra fungicide applications in years that are highly favorable for Cercospora. 1. Consider excluding NIS or HSMOC from insecticide containing tank mixes with Roundup*, especially when applied to cotyledon to two-leaf sugarbeets. Crop damage from herbicide residues can be minimized by the application of the lowest herbicide rate that provides effective weed control, by using band rather than broadcast applications and by moldboard plowing before planting the next crop. Some isolates of the Cercospora fungus have been found that were resistant to the benzimidazole class of fungicide and tolerant to TPTH. Complied by Mohamed Khan, NDSU/University of Minnesota, David Franzen, NDSU; Mark Boetel, NDSU; Ashok Chanda, University of Minnesota, NWROC; Albert Sims, University of Minnesota, Crookston; Thomas Peters, NDSU/University of Minnesota. To achieve best germination, Deer Creek Seed recommends planting sugar beets at least 1/2 to 1-inch deep. Areas at highest risk of damaging SBRM infestations include rural Auburn, Bathgate, Cavalier, Crystal, Glasston, Grand Forks, Merrifield, St. Thomas, Thompson and Walhalla, N.D., as well as Argyle, Crookston, Donaldson, East Grand Forks, Eldred and Stephen, Minn. If severe crusting is evident in the field, the crust should be broken up before or during the insecticide application. If broadcasting, avoid using an exceptionally low (less than 50% of labeled maximum) rate. • Reduce N by 20 to 30 lb/acre next season on areas of yellow-green sugarbeet tops.
