increasing yields and protection of agricultures against diseases, A.K. Zlotnikov,
Ed. Prof. À. Melkumova. All-Russia Institute of Plant Protection, Russia, 2006.
Influence of Albit on table beet was examined in 3 field trials in 2 regions of
Russia (Moscow and Leningrad oblasts) by All-Russia Institute of Vegetable Selection
and Seed Breeding, and Leningrad Regional Plant Protection Station (2001, 2003) on
beet variety Bordeaux. According to results of the trials, tratment with
Albit increased yield of table beet averagely by 24.3 centners/hectare
(14.7% over control). In conducted trials, economical or biological effectiveness
of Albit was not inferior to that of formulations based on epibrassinolide and
Treatment of table beet with Albit should be performed in
accordance with general application recommendations for vegetables.
