Abstract

This article discusses environmental factors influencing the partition of sugar products between the tops and storage roots of sugar beets. Root size was found to be related in a specific way to top size. This root-to-top relationship was unaffected by changes in light intensity but was affected by change in temperature or nitrogen supply. Storage roots grew and stored sugar by the continual addition of new cells.
