Sugar beet crop (Beta vulgaris subsp. vulgaris) grown for its storage root, is the world’s second source of sucrose after sugar cane, and is used as a biofuel feedstock. Sugar beet produces up to 22% of the world’s commercial sugar and about half of the United States’s domestic production. It’s a biennial plant that develops leaves and storage More...
