The main development of the sugar beet is in July and August, and needs irrigation. However, as a result of excessive irrigation, the product can be large, and as a result, the amount of sugar falls. For this reason, moderate irrigation is needed.
In practice, when the leaves of the sugar beet are dark green or the leaves wither after noon, the time of watering is considered to be late.
The first irrigation is in mid-July. It is considered appropriate to provide 4-6 times a day for 15-20 days during development and 80-120 mm of water per irrigation.
Rainwater irrigation should also be used extensively in sugar beet irrigation along with double irrigation and baraza irrigation.
Irrigation is the best method for the sugar beet, but it is important to pay attention to the quality of irrigation water.
Sugar beet is in great need of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Although Azot will lower sugar in sugar beet, there will be significant increases in yield.
All phosphorus fertilizers and half nitrogen fertilizer are given during planting. The other half of the nitrogen fertilizer should be given after dilution, before the first stain.
