Much of the percent difference comes from the fact that cane and beets are two different plants altogether. Beets are a root, growing below ground; cane is a grass, waving in the breeze.

Sugar Beet Uses While the most common use for cultivated sugar beets is for processed sugar, there are several other sugar beet. Informer Senator William Clark of Montana, purchased 8, acres of land that formerly belonged to acre Los Alamitos Rancho; a year later, he opened a sugar beet processing plant, calling the enterprise, the Los Alamitos Sugar Company; Clark also laid out a company town, Los Alamitos, CA, near to the factory.

A sugar beet is a plant whose root contains a high concentration of sucrose and which is grown commercially for sugar production.

In plant breeding it is known as the Altissima cultivar group of the common beet. Together with other beet cultivars, such as beetroot and chard, it belongs to the subspecies Beta vulgaris subsp.

vulgaris. Its closest wild relative is the sea beet. InRussia. Report of the College of Agriculture and the Agricultural Experiment Station of the University of California: From July 1,to J ; Circulars ; War Emergency Leaflets: Author, Unknown: : BooksAuthor: Unknown Author.

superior yield under Imperial Valley conditions. When non-bolting varieties became available, sugar beet production in Imperial Valley became stabilized, the successful practice being fall plant­ ing with harvest in May or June of the next year.

Fall planting seemed preferable for sugar beets, and acreages increased. A beet sugar factory was. the average sugar content is only %).

The standard sugar beet should have a sugar content of 16%, which would yield kg of sugar per 1 ton of standard sugar beet processed at a sugar plant (ideal efficiency is %). Specific conditions for sugar beet cultivation Unlike sugar cane, sugar beet does not thrive in tropical conditions.

The. Sugar beet (Beta vulgaris, L) is a biennial plant. In the first year, it produces an enlarged root and hypocotyl, in which it stores sucrose that provides energy used to flower in the next season. Sugar beet typically is cultivated in the northern temperate zones, between 30° and 60°, where it is primarily a spring-planted crop.

Culture. The sugar beet, like sugarcane, needs a peculiar soil and a unique climate for its successful most important requirement is that the soil shall contain a large supply of plant food, be rich in humus and have the property of retaining a great deal of moisture.

Under favorable conditions, yields of 50–75 tons of sugar beet roots may be produced. The sucrose stored in the roots of sugar beets normally ranges from 13 to 18% of the gross weight, varying with the variety, its culture, and the climate in which the beets are grown. Utah was one of the first states to begin sugar-beet growing.

The industry grew rapidly, favored by the climate, by the naturally productive soils, by the freedom from pests, and by the system of intensive irrigation agriculture.

California and Utah were among the leading beet-producing states at the time of the World War, and under the stimulus of high prices they remained so until the great. Soon after, sugar beet culture and factories expanded in many states.

Sugar Beets in California. Since11 sugar factories have been built throughout California. However, the last sugar beet factory in northern California closed inending more than years of beet production in the region and leaving only one operating in the state.

To obtain the seed for growing the commercial crop of sugar beets for the factories to process, the industry maintains several.Sugarbeet (Beta vulgaris) provides about 16 percent of the world's sugar production.

Present world production is about million tons of beets from about million ha. (FAOSTAT, ). The crop is believed to originate from Asia. Sugarbeet is a biennial crop but for sugar production beets are harvested in. A multistep in vitro cell selection was carried out on a well-proliferating callus tissue of sugar beet capable of morphogenesis.
