From the CTPS Beet and industrial chicory Section

At its meeting on 18 January, the Beet and Industrial Chicory Section proposed 46 sugar beet varieties, 10 fodder beet varieties and 2 industrial chicory varieties for registration in the French Catalogue.

The section discussed the results of trials inoculated with yellows viruses, which have been underway for 2 years. These trials are used to evaluate all varieties in the 1st and 2nd years of testing, using an experimental set-up with 4 methods: one non-inoculated method and one inoculated method for each of the 3 viruses responsible for yellows (BYV, BMYV and BChV).

The section congratulated all those involved in these trials for their commitment and remarkable work. A working group has been set up to further investigate and interpret the results.

Finally, the section was informed of the intention to register a variety tolerant to SBR (“Syndrôme Basses Richesses”), a disease that reappeared in France this year. The year 2024 will therefore focus on the development of a protocol for future trials.
