THE SUGARBEET PLANT is adapted to a wide range in climate. It is
a major crop in irrigated areas because of its tolerance to salinity, hardiness,
and its productivity which makes it a good cash crop under various growing
seasons and soils. The major areas of irrigated sugarbeets are in California,
Colorado, Idaho, Nebraska, Washington, and Wyoming. The major non-irrigated
sugarbeet areas are in the Red River Valley of Minnesota and North Dakota and in Michigan (37).
