Fodder beet (FB) have by far the highest yield of net energy for lactation (NEL) per ha and are a good catch crop for nitrogen (De Brabander et al. 2012). During the last fifty years, the cultivated area decreased steeply due to labour-intensity and phytopathological threats, as well as preservation difficulties. Nowadays, improved mechanization and availability of disease-resistant cultivars make FB again an attractive crop (ADBFM 2009, Bradshaw 2010). Still, conservation of fresh FB asks a lot of care and attention, and losses can be important (e.g. in case of harvest damage) (Lauwers et al. 2009). To examine the possibilities of ensiling FB, a two-year research project (2015-2017) was performed with main support of the Research Fund of University College Ghent.
