Sugar Beet Varieties
All Strube sugar beet varieties for the UK market have completed National and Recommended List trials and are Recommended by the BBRO/BSPB.
Landon Sugar Beet – NEW
Landon is a new variety on the 2018 Recommended List of sugar beet. Already a commercial sugar beet variety in France and Sweden, Landon provides an excellent all round agronomic package – consistent very high Sugar Yield and Adjusted Tonnes with high Sugar Content, excellent establishment and moderate levels of bolters. Landon is not suitable for earlier drillings (before mid-March), but has acceptable bolting resistance for normal sowings and is ideal for later drillings, when the risk of bolting is reduced. Landon offers an alternative source of genetics at the top of the 2018 Recommended List. Read more
Degas Sugar Beet – NEW
Degas offers a versatile agronomic package including high Sugar Yields and Adjusted Tonnes with good sugar content and respectably low levels of bolting from both early and normal sowings. Degas is National Listed and commercial in France, Denmark and the UK and offers another useful alternative genetic on the Recommended List. All in all, a neat and tidy sugar beet with very large tops and good-looking uniform roots. Read more
Haydn, for a fourth year in succession, will make up nearly 20% of the UK national sugar beet area in 2017, – the maximum allowed by British Sugar for a single variety. It continues to offer one the best combinations of high yield, high sugar content and very low bolting of all the sugar beet varieties on the BBRO/BSPB 2018 Recommended List. A model of consistency and performance, Haydn, with its exceptional and proven bolting resistance, can be relied on to deliver a profitable crop. Read more
The flexibility of early drilling, excellent emergence and consistency of performance have made Pasteur a firm favourite with many sugar beet growers. Commercially proven and already profitable in six different seasons, over many different soil types and harvest dates, Pasteur is once again in 2017 one of the UK’s most popular sugar beet varieties. Pasteur still offers some of the lowest bolting from early sowings of any variety on the new List. It also shows excellent establishment with vigorous growth, and its excellent canopy helps to prevent late weeds and summer egg laying by wheat bulb fly . Read more
Thor provides an affordable and fully effective way of growing a profitable crop when BCN infestations are suspected or present, giving good yields in fields of low, moderate and high infestation with markedly lower multiplication of nematodes numbers (pF/pI) compared to “light-tolerant” and non-tolerant types.
Thor sugar beet has shown good establishment and is the only fully recommended BCN tolerant variety suitable for early sowing. This low bolting allows Thor to provide the opportunity to get the yield benefit from earlier drilling with a considerably reduced risk of bolters. Read more
