This study was conducted during 2016-2018 at the Agriculture Research Station of King Abdulaziz University at Hada Al-Sham, Saudi Arabia. The study aimed to evaluate three sugar beet cultivars (Farida, Dita and Heros) under three nitrogen fertilizer rates (100, 200 and 300 kg N/ha). As nitrogen fertilizer rate increased root yield, yield components, sucrose (%) and yield significantly increased in both seasons. Fresh root yield under 300 kg N/ha was the highest in both seasons. Farida cv. was
