Interpretive Summary: Environmental conditions, such as wind, water, and temperature, or genetic disorders can affect beet production but can also cause symptoms that may be confused with those associated with pest or disease damage. Listed below are some the potential abiotic stresses that may occur to beet but are unrelated to specific pests or diseases.

Technical Abstract: Environmental conditions, such as wind, water, and temperature, or genetic disorders can affect beet production but can also cause symptoms that may be confused with those associated with pest or disease damage. Listed below are some the potential abiotic stresses that may occur to beet but are unrelated to specific pests or diseases. These included water stress (deficit), water stress (surplus), hail damage, lightning, wind damage, freeze damage, crusting, soil compaction, salt injury, animals, zoning, and genetic disorders.
