BBRO Research

Our sugar beet research programme covers 2 areas of activity; Crop Protection and Crop Production.

Research portfolio

Our full research programme currently consists of a wide range of projects, some of which our delivered solely in-house but where possible we work in collaboration with other research partners and PhD students. This increases the knowledge and expertise available, links us to other work and ensures increased return for our investment. The work within each pillar varies dependent on which issues have most importance or urgency to the industry.  


Sugar beet yield

Sugar beet yield has risen steadily over a number of years, however, our research shows that there is more potential to be realised.  Our combined programmes of research work will continue to deliver increased in yield for years to come.
