Its worth to mention that beetroots were produced at fields of the plant diseases department campus, and the results of the project were presented to the Genetic Engineering Committee that confirmed the importance of the project results.

The research team has already done this before on the seeds of wheat, barley, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, soybeans, sugar beet, sesame and peas to increase the production about 30% - 150% according to the cultivated crop.
