Field experiment was undertaken during 2005-06 to 2006-07 to study the various agro-techniques for sugar beet cultivation for Northern Karnataka at Agricultural Research Station, Bailhongal, Belgaum district (Karnataka) under irrigated condition. The experiment consisted of 18 treatment combinations comprising of sugar beet genotypes and harvesting schedules with split plot design comprised of three replications. The significantly higher yield and quality attributes were observed by Cauvery genotypes. There is a need to standardize the suitable harvesting months for higher tuber yield. With respect to harvesting dates, tuber harvested at 5 and 5 ½ months after sowing recorded significantly higher tuber yield than rest of the harvesting schedule. Therefore, Cauvery genotype harvested 5 ½ months after sowing was found more economical and sustainable production technology.
