An analysis of the variation in crown size in sugar-beet (Beta vulgaris) grown in England

Annals of Applied Biology 134(2): 225-232

An analysis of the variation in crown size in sugar-beet (Beta vulgaris) grown in England

The processed part of the sugarbeet plant, the beet, consists of secondary storage tissues developed from the root and hypocotyl and the crown which, botanically, is the compressed stem.
