Abstract


Mangold (Beta vulgaris ssp.cicla L.) is cultivated for leaf stalks (petioles) but can also be consumed in their different culinary dishes. In Europe, it is grown on larger surfaces in Italy, France and Spain. It is an important source of beta carotene and vitamins (C and A). Petiole is rich in sodium and potassium and leaves contain potassium, calcium and phosphorus (Indrea et al., 2012, Lagunovschi-Luchian and Vânătoru, 2016).Experience was carried out in 2017, in a vegetable farm, in the locality of Săcuieni, Bihor County, a favorable area for mangold culture due to specific pedoclimatic conditions.
