Curly top of sugarbeets caused by Beet curly top virus (BCTV) was widespread from
southeastern Oregon to southcentral Idaho in 2004. Curly top first became a serious
threat to sugarbeet production in southern Idaho in 1919. By the time the first resistant
variety was released in 1935, BCTV had almost eliminated the sugarbeet industry (2).
Today this disease is largely managed through the use of resistant varieties. Early
planting and the use of systemic insecticides (phorate, aldicarb, and imidicloprid) will
also help limit curly top (1,2,4).
