SMBSC maintains six Campbell Scientific weather stations located across our growing area to monitor temperature, humidity, and rainfall in selected sugar beet fields. The data from these stations are used to help determine the potential of cercospora leafspot infection to the sugar beets. A Disease Index Value is calculated based on the temperature and humidity during the previous 24 hour period. The higher the Disease Index Value, the higher the potential for this disease to infect the sugar beets.
