Experimental Station on Sugar Beet offers consumers services for modifying for local conditions methodological recommendations for the diagnosis of viral diseases in sugar beet crops under an outsourcing agreement and is looking for partners interested in a distribution services agreement.
The recommendations were prepared by the team of the Republican Unitary Enterprise “Experimental Station on Sugar Beet” consisting of:
I. V. Chechetkina, head. department of sugar beet agricultural technology,
M. I. Gulyaka, leading researcher, candidate of agricultural sciences,
S. N. Gaityukevich, Candidate of Agricultural Sciences,
E. M. Kashevich, researcher,
E. A. Shkraba, junior researcher,
V. S. Shkut, junior researcher.

The recommendations are intended for specialists in beet-growing farms and raw materials departments of sugar factories.

Detection of viral diseases by enzyme immunoassay will allow us to gain a deeper understanding of the structure of the virus population in the region and determine their prevalence in sugar beet crops. At the same time, assessment of domestic breeding numbers and lines for resistance to pathogens viral diseases will allow us to select the most promising ones for their further use in the breeding process.

Conducting targeted research on the prevalence of viral diseases, identifying their causative agents and developing diagnostic methods is relevant.

Additional comments
At the Republican Unitary Enterprise “Experimental Station on Sugar Beet”, within the framework of the Program for the Development of Scientific and Practical Centers, design work is being carried out to create a breeding and seed-growing complex.

The station has an automatic line for determining the technological qualities of Venema root crops, and equipment for pelleting sugar beet seeds from Germens. A technology for cultivating and harvesting sugar beets has been developed and is being implemented, making it possible to ensure a sugar yield at the plant of at least 7.5 t/ha with labor costs of up to 0.15 man-hours per 1 quintal of root crops. The station is working to further improve the technology in order to reduce costs and harmful impacts on the natural environment. New forms of fertilizers for sugar beets have been created: complex fertilizers for basic and pre-sowing application. Together with the Kletsk Mechanical Plant, a seeder design was developed for applying a starting dose of complex fertilizers simultaneously with sowing.

At the Station, much attention is paid to work on correcting the mineral nutrition of sugar beets during the growing season.

The main activity of the Experimental Station is research work on the problems of beet growing, propaganda and assistance in the development of scientific developments in agricultural production, including:

- creation of sugar beet hybrids using a breeding and seed-growing complex and with quality control of breeding material at all stages, organization of industrial seed production in regions with favorable natural conditions;

- improving the technology of cultivating sugar beets in order to obtain high yields and quality of root crops with minimal labor costs and economically feasible costs of material resources;

- monitoring and analysis of the progress of crop formation, control of elements of sugar beet cultivation technology and recommendations for resolving emerging issues.

5 promising hybrids have been created and 2 hybrids of sugar beet, resistant to diseases of leaf apparatus and root crops with a potential yield of 730-780 c/ha and a sugar content of 18%, have been submitted to the State variety testing.
