AbstractThe study deals with the influence of pre-sowing seed material stimulation with the use of energ'hill (Eh) technology and different radiation doses of the semiconductor laser on germination and productivity of sugar beet. The experiment was conducted in laboratory conditions and in field experiments, according to the method independent series, in four replications. Positive effect of morphological features stimulation was observed for the Eh seed breeding program. After irradiation of the beet-seed balls, substantially higher concentration of carotenoids and chlorophylls in the seedlings coming from the Eh program as well as the increase in the indicator value (chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b ratio) was noticed. The plants developed from the seeds obtained from Eh program and from the irradiated seeds were characterized by higher yield than the plants emerged from non-stimulated seeds. Seeds preparation in Eh program had positive influence on yields and it lowered the content of saccharose and molasses forming substances.
