Sulfur deficiency of sugar beets (Beta Vulgaris L.) was first reported in
1941 by Tolman and Stoker (10) in beets grown for seed in the Willamette Valley
of Oregon. The symptoms were described as retarded growth, yellow color,
breakdown of leaf tissue, lack of flowering, and increased susceptibility to
disease. Since then sulfur deficiency of this crop has been reported in California
(11) and Sweden (5). Sulfur deficiency of sugar beets decreases seed
yield (10) as well as the yield and percent of sugar in the roots (5). A review
of the sulfur requirements of sugar, fiber and oil crops has been published (8).
