Evaluation of precision planting techniques, flail topping and non row-oriented harvesters for table beet production.

Objectives:

  • Evaluate the potential of producing table beets using precision planting of near single sprout per seed-ball seed lots of a table beet hybrid, flail-topped prior to harvest and harvested with a non row-oriented digger.
  • Evaluate secondary topping at the processing plant with a vibrating grate topper donated for this study by KPR Sales.

COOPERATORS:
