Climatic requirements of the sugarbeet:
Sugarbeet is cultivated primarily in temperature climate zones in which there is a warm but not humid climate. The beet has a low transpiration coefficient compared to other cultures cultivated at our latitudes (water demand 350–450 l/kg TM).
This means on the one hand, they can survive dry phases without yield decreases and that it has a relatively low water demand to form a proportionally low kg dry mass. For crop harvest, sugarbeet require a vegetation duration of 180–220 days. In August/September, sunny days and cool nights necessitate bringing the sugar inside. Sugarbeet is sensitive to late frosts in their early stages (< –5°C).
