Interpretive Summary: For over 45 years the USDA-ARS Sugar Beet Research Unit at Fort Collins, CO, has established disease nurseries to evaluate sugarbeet resistance to Cercospora Leaf Spot and Rhizoctonia Root Rot. These nurseries, designed to produce relatively uniform and severe disease pressure each year, are part of the ARS national breeding and disease-resistance research program.
