Three-year field experiment ( 1999 - 2001) with sugar beet Radnevo and Chemus variety was conducted in Plovdiv region. The aim was to study the influence of the irrigation methods on the chemical composition. Two irrigation methods: surface ( by furrows) and drip irrigation were used. Sucrose content vary from 1,3 to 18,5 % by Radnevo and 12,1 - 14,4 % by Chemus variety.
