Series: Food and Beverage Consumption and Health
BISAC: TEC012000

Sugar beet is one of two the most important industrial cultures for sugar production. Sugar beet is an effective bioindicator plant used for bioassay detection of herbicide residues in soil because of its sensitivity to many herbicides. This book discusses the production of sugar beets, as well as its uses and health implications.
