What Is Wrong With My Beets


Anonymous added on February 23, 2015 | Answered

What is wrong with my beets? When the leaves get desiccated, almost lace like? Seems like a fungal thing. Both my beets and chard leaves lose their color and moisture.

If the leaves are "lace-like" that suggest something that is eating the leaves, like beet armyworms. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/beets/beet-armyworm-control.htm
Some causes of fading and drying leaves could be water stress (too much or too little,) temperatures too warm or too much sun,and improper fertilizing. Here's some info on growing beets: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/beets/growing-beets.htm
