Abstract

New measuring techniques have enabled researchers to accurately estimate the amount of N to apply to achieve maximum sugar yield.The efficient use of nitrogen fertilizer for sugarbeets calls for just enough to achieve maximum sugar yield, and no more. Experiments indicate that a t the correct application rate, excess N is not left to leach to ground waters.
