INVENTORS -

Irwin Goldman, Dwight "Nick" Breitbach

The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) is seeking commercial partners interested in new beet varieties.
OVERVIEWWisconsin is a top producer of beets in the U.S. Most of the beets grown in Wisconsin are red, although other varieties also can be found in the state.
THE INVENTIONUW-Madison researchers have developed a new line of beets. W427 is an inbred table beet line with excellent exterior smoothness and good uniformity of type. It also has multigerm seed, a round to blocky-shaped root, green foliage, rounded leaves, a small crown and a small taproot. W427A and 427B were derived from the cross [W371 x (W365 x W416)]. W416 and W365 are unreleased inbred lines, while W371 is a smooth and uniform, inbred, multigerm line that was previously released by the University of Wisconsin Table Beet Breeding Program. W427A is a red-anthered sterile and W427B is the maintainer genotype.
