EFFECT OF YEAR AND ATONIK APPLICATION ON THE SELECTED SUGAR BEET PRODUCTION AND QUALITY PARAMETERS
2002, 3 (1) p. 15-22
In a field trial, realised in a warm, slightly dry, maize growing region, an influence of different rates of Atonik (A: 0,6 + 0,6 l.ha-1; B: 0,4 + 0,6 + 0,6 l.ha-1; C: 0,25 + 1,0 + 0,6 l.ha-1) was observed on some technological and qualitative parameters of sugar beet (root yield, digestion, refined sugar yield). We have found a statistically high significant effect of both the yearly weather conditions and Atonik application on the development of production parameters of sugar beet in 1998 - 2000. In average, the highest values of observed parameters such as yield of sugar beet roots (54,04 t.ha-1), digestion (17,13 °S), refined sugar (14,30 % ) were obtained for Atonik-treated variant C (0,25 + 1,0 + 0,6 l.ha-1) in 1999.
