Description

Cercospora leaf spot (CLS), caused by the fungus Cercospora beticola, is the most important foliar disease of sugarbeet throughout the world. It causes disease by reducing the photosynthetic area of leaves and producing a toxin that damages leaf cells. CLS has become endemic in the Red River Valley sugarbeet production area of eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota that accounts for about 60% of the total US crop, producing 13 million metric tons with yields of 42-28 mt/ha.
