Beta vulgaris

Fodder beet

For fodder and biogas - Top yield, high dry matter content

Top performance in trials

Bergman is a beet variety for fodder and energy, where the breeding has been based on types with high content of drymatter. The yield of drymatter is also very high, in Denmark Bergman topped the variety trials in 2012 and 2013 with a relative yield of 101, corresponding to 22 tons of drymatter per ha.

Excellent properties

Bergman has a high content of dry matter in root, approximately 22%, the beet is placed very even in soil, around 6 cm above ground. Bergman is resistant against the virus disease rhizomania, which can occur in tight beet rotations.
