Enermax has white root colour and is a variety based on the well-known fodder beet Magnum. The yield of drymatter in the root of Enermax is around 10 % higher compared to Magnum, but yield of top is slightly lower. Enermax is resistant against the disease Rhizomania.
Enermax has a very smooth root. The consequence is a very low dirt tare and the soil on the root when lifted falls off easily. Enermax is placed relatively high in the ground.
In trials the yield of drymatter harvested has been well above 20 ton per ha. Furthermore 4-5 ton is obtained in the beet top. Enermax is, due to the combination of high yield and low dirt tare, ideal for forage as well as for biogas production.
