Best Management Practices For Disease Control

In order for a sugarbeet disease to become a problem it needs three things: a susceptible host, favorable environment for development, and the disease must be present. It is vitally important to choose Tolerant/Resistant varieties if a particular disease is present in your fields; for many diseases this is the only way to control them. Along with varietal resistance, correct fungicide timing with favorable environmental conditions is critical for Rhizoctonia and Cercopora control. Proper rotations are also beneficial in breaking the disease cycle.
