The Amalgamated Sugar Company production area in
southern Idaho and southeastern Oregon suffers considerable losses from root rot in the field. Both Rhizoctonia and bacterial root rots on sugarbeet are common
in Treasure Valley and Magic Valley (Fig. 1 and 2), while
eastern Idaho fields seem to be relatively root rot free.
The yield losses in some Treasure Valley fields can approach or surpass 50%. The growers not only suffer
losses in the field, but diseased roots also store and
process poorly, leading to additional losses.
