Beet Seeds Planting Information:

Beets do not do well in poor soil or clay soil, so prepare the soil by adding compost and manure. They thrive in cooler regions. Plant your seeds outdoors directly in the garden. Planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked and 1 week after last frost. Plant in 2 to 3 weeks intervals for a steady harvest until about 2 months before first killing frost in the fall. Plants can grow 2" to 12" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires loose fertile soil that is slightly alkaline in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil uniformly moist and from drying out.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Dig or pull roots when 2" or greater. You can harvest beets for greens at any time. Leave fall crop in the ground until needed or when soil begins to freeze.

CLS – Cercospora Leaf Spot

Scientific Name: Cercospora asparagi, Cercospora beticola

Type: Fungus

Cercospora Leaf Spot is a world-wide fungal disease that affects the growth of asparagus, beets, carrots, corn, eggplants, peppers, soybeans, and tomatoes. It is the most destructive foliage disease of beets in Colorado, Nebraska, and Wyoming. Leaf spots occur on leaves. Symptoms include lesions of round or angular brown spots with green, brown, gray, or white centers. The leaves turn yellow, wither, and eventually die off and the whole plant becomes defoliated. The infected plants should be removed to avoid further infestation. The disease is favorable when temperatures are 55-65 F and usually occur between June and August when moisture and humidity are very high. Fungicides can help manage the disease. The best option is to use disease resistant varieties.
