Therefore the same high standards are applied to our Feedbeet varieties as we do to our range of market-leading sugar beet varieties.

The KWS breeding programme continuously aims to reduce the level of soil harvested with its high DM Feedbeet varieties.

Harvest

To maximise DM yield, beet is best harvested from mid-to-late November. This is when root weight has peaked and dry matter yield will be highest.

Storage

There are currently three main methods that are advocated for the storage of KWS Feedbeet and Energybeet ...
