Beet Greens

Asked July 14, 2014, 2:01 PM EDT

My beet greens have all turned brown and dying back. The weather the last week has been hot 80-90s. Is this due to the heat?

Hi, It is a possibility that the heat is affecting your beet greens as they prefer to grow in cooler temps. It would be best to see a photo or have you bring in a sample of the plant damage so that we can diagnose it correctly and suggest management if any. Feel free to email me a photo to the email address below. Thanks, Amy Jo
