The root yields changed between 105.66 t/ha (Lider) and 157.15 ton/ha (Libellule) while beet yields of sugar beet varieties belonged to control (without Zn application) group (Zn(-)) are established between 95.34 ton/ha (Lider) and 137.92 ton/ha (Libellule). The yield of beet varieties grown in Zn (+) applied soils increased compared to control. While the sucrose amounts of sugar beet varieties for control (Zn(-)) vary between 13.70% (Rodeo) and 13.86% (Libellule), the sucrose contents of beet varieties grown in Zinc applied leaf were identified between 15.23% (Rodeo) and 15.46% (Lider). K, Na and α-amino N results showed fluctuations depending on sugar beet varieties. There were statistically significant differences among K, Na and α-amino N contents of sugar beet varieties (p<0.01; p<0.05) depending on Zn (+) application compared to control (Zn (-)) groups. The refined sugar yield is directly related to the refined sugar content and sugar beet yield.
