    Ok then, is there any nutritional difference between Sugar beet and Fodder beet?

    Thanks.

    Fodder Beet

    ~Average Dry Matter yield = 13-15 tonnes/ha Average fresh yields = 80-90 tonnes/ha Dry Matter = 12-19% Crude protein = 12-13% Digestibility value = 78% Metabolisable energy = 12.5-13 MJ/kg

    Sugar Beet

    Dry matter yield 18t/ha, Fresh yield 90t/ha, Crude Protein 7%, D Value 81%, sugar yield 18%

    So = SB has lower protein but higher energy
