Comments
Self incompatible multigerm progeny segregating mainly red hypocotyl color, with moderate resistance to Cercospora leaf spot. Averages 107% root weight, 96% sucrose percentage, and 95% recoverable white sugar per ton compared with the commercial hybrid Mono-Hy-E4. Field trail hybrids having SR80 as pollinator parent averaged 100-123% root weight, 93-96% sucrose percentage, and 100% of the purity of Mono-Hy-E4. Can be machine harvested with 50% less soil adhering to the taproots than for Mono-Hy-E4. In comparison with SR87, a smooth root germplasm, produces about one ton per acre less root weight with 0.9% higher sucrose percentage. Root smoothness score of 2.25 in comparison of 1.75 for SR87 and 3.25 for Mono-Hy-E4.
