Abstract— The aim of the studies was to determine suitability of effluent from methane digestion of organic wastes generated during processing of sugar beets for soil application at sugar beet plantations. In the paper parameters of technological value of sugar beet roots harvested from plots with standard values (i.e. optimal values for processing) which were defined by the Institute are discussed. It was shown that effluent from digestion of sugar beet pulp can be utilized as soil amendment on sugar beet plantations without any restrictions bearing in mind content of heavy metals and harmful microorganisms. Nutrients contained in studied effluent from gasifier are available for sugar beet plants at the same level as nutrients from mineral fertilizers. Determination of heavy metals in soil samples taken before and after effluent application did not reveal accumulation of harmful elements in the soil in the result of waste utilization.
Keywords— digestion effluent, fertilization, soil, sugar beet, sugar beet technological value.
