Technical Abstract: Investigation of sugar beet seed germination in water, hydrogen peroxide, and other solutions has revealed insights into the mechanism of seedling vigor in beets. Results showed that germination in solution reflected the relative emergence potential of sugar beet in the field. Experiments at East Lansing should be repeated elsewhere to gauge their applicability in commercial applications.
