Excerpt from Bibliography of Research on Utilization of Sugar Beets 1949-1965, in the Western Utilization Research and Development Division
Research on sugar beet utilization in the U. S. Department of Agriculture at Albany, Calif. Was begun in July 1948. The initial program ... was based on the sugar beet industry's need for (a) fundamental information on which to develop new and improved processing methods, (b) methods to predict processing characteristics of various types of beets, and (c) increased efficiency and lower cost in beet sugar manufacture.
Funds were made available through the Research and Marketing Act of 1946 for research at Albany as well as for contract research at institutions throughout the country, where facilities or scientists were best qualified for a particular project. Since 1958 selected research projects in foreign countries have been subsidized with funds made available from the sale of surplus crops under Public Law 480. Some sugar beet utilization research has been thus supported.
From the beginning, the beet sugar industry was keenly interested in the re search program. An advisory committee of industry representatives (chemists and research directors) was formed to advise the Laboratory scientists on problems important to the industry. The committee, known as the Sugar Beet Process Advi sory Committee, was appointed by the Beet Sugar Development Foundation, Fort Collins, Colo. Its first meeting was held in 1949. Semiannual or annual meetings were held throughout the years at the Western Regional Research Laboratory or at the biannual meetings of the American Society of Sugar Beet Technologists.
