Responses of the Sugar Beet to Low Soil Moisture at Two Levels of Nitrogen Nutrition1

Synopsis

Synopsis

Moisture stress reduced vegetative growth and increased sucrose concentration (fresh basis) in the roots of sugar beet plants grown at high and low levels of N nutrition. Beet purity and sucrose yield were increased by N deficiency but not by moisture stress. Effects of the two factors were independent and additive. Changes in sucrose concentration are interpreted on an osmotic basis.
