Abstract

The sustainability of modern sugar beet growing has been proved considerably high. Its improvement has been gradual, streamlined with relevant progresses in crop breeding and husbandry. However, opportunities still exist for a much better required sustainable intensification of sugar beet production. For this purpose, one of the most important prerequisites definitely is the availability of sugar beet varieties characterized by a high and stable yielding attributes, but also endowed with key sustainability traits, such as resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses,and resilience and adaptability to lower input practices. It is expected that now-a-days by employing powerful novel molecular techniques, new sugar beet varieties will be developed which would improve potentially the sugar production from beets.
