Abstract

The following article is based upon extracts from reports of research on sugar beets conducted in the College of Agriculture by the Department of Home Economics and the Divisions of Agricultural Economics, Agricultural Engineering, Agronomy, Animal Husbandry, Botany, Dairy Industry, Entomology, Food Technology, Irrigation, Parasitology, Plant Nutrition, Plant Pathology, Poultry Husbandry, Soils, and Zoology.

The successful application to commercial sugar beet growing of the research reported herein is due to the co-operation of sugar processors, local growers and the United States Department of Agriculture with the University of California.

The controlled environment laboratory equipment study is being conducted through the co-operation of the California Institute of Technology, the Beet Sugar Development Foundation, and the Earhart Plant Research Laboratory in Pasadena.
