In addition to sugar, several different compounds are presently separated from beet molasses and juices Nowadays, some of these products have proved to be economically even more important to beet sugar factories than the original product, sugar. One of these compounds is glycinebetaine (N, N’, N”-trimethylglycine, GB), an amino acid derivative accumulated in many microbes and plant species grown under stress, but also in humans. Especially halophytes belonging to families Amaranthaceae…

TLDR
The results showed that the increase in yield and quality was due to exogenous GB applications, Indeed, water stress tolerance varied depending on cultivars.
Glycine betaine rather than acting only as an osmolyte also plays a role as regulator in cellular metabolism.
TLDR
The aim of this review was to gather information about the role of GB in the metabolism of ethanol, lipids, carbohydrates and proteins in animals and to show that GB regulates enzymes involved in the homocysteine/methionine cycle, sucrose, glucose, fructose and glycogen metabolism.
Beet Molasses Enhance Salinity Tolerance in Thymus serpyllum—A Study under Greenhouse Condition
TLDR
Evidence is provided that soil-applied SBM beneficially changed the plant’s biochemical response to salt stress, contributing to the strengthening of plant protection against this harmful environmental factor.
Influence of Glycinebetaine on Water Stress Tolerance of Hibiscus sabdariffa L. Plant
Glycinebetaine is an amino component that accumulates in many plant species under drought stress. In order to evaluate the response of vegetative growth, yield components, quality and anthocyanin
Response of salt stressed okra (Abelmoschus esculentus Moench) plants to foliar-applied glycine betaine and glycine betaine containing sugarbeet extract
Abstract The present experiment was aimed at examining the ameliorative effect of foliar-applied glycine betaine (50 mM GB) and glycine betaine containing sugarbeet extract (50 mM GB) on various
Sugar beet extract acts as a natural bio-stimulant for physio-biochemical attributes in water stressed wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
TLDR
SBE seed priming effectively reduced the negativities of water stress on seed germination which resulted in better plant growth in terms of enhanced biomass, photosynthetic pigments, antioxidant defense mechanism and better nutrient homeostasis.
Sugar Beet, Energy Beet, and Industrial Beet
Sugar beet (Beta vulgaris) is a temperate root crop grown primarily as a source of sucrose for human diets. Breeding has focused on sucrose yield, which is simply the product of total root yield
Alleviation of salt-induced adverse effects in eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) by glycinebetaine and sugarbeet extracts
Abstract Two eggplant cultivars, Dilnasheen and Bemisal, were selected to assess whether pure GB and sugarbeet extract could effectively ameliorate the harmful effects of salt stress on eggplant (
The effects of methanol and amino acid glycine betaine on qualitative characteristics and yield of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) cultivars
In order to investigate the effects of methanol and glycine betaine application on quality traits and yield of different fodder beet cultivars, the experiment was performed as a combined
Proline, Glycinebetaine, and Trehalose Uptake and Inter-Organ Transport in Plants Under Stress
Proline, glycinebetaine, and trehalose function as compatible solutes and are upregulated in plants under abiotic stress. The uptake and inter-organ transport in plants are largely unknown. We review

Foliar application of glycinebetaine—a novel product from sugar beet—as an approach to increase tomato yield
Abstract Glycinebetaine, a novel product from sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L. v. altissima), is purified from molasses during sugar processing through chromatographic separation, enrichment and
Genetic engineering of glycinebetaine production toward enhancing stress tolerance in plants: metabolic limitations.
TLDR
The need to enhance the endogenous choline supply to support accumulation of physiologically relevant amounts of betaine is demonstrated, as a moderate stress tolerance was noted in some but not all betaine-producing transgenic lines based on relative shoot growth.
Uptake and translocation of foliar-applied glycinebetaine in crop plants
TLDR
According to the results, glycinebetaine is quite inert end-product in plant cells being mainly phloem-mobile, and environmental conditions are shown to affect the uptake and translocation rates of foliar-applied glycineBetaine.
Significance of betaines in the increased chlorophyll content of plants treated with seaweed extract
TLDR
It was concluded that the effects of enhancing chlorophyll levels produced by the seaweed extract were due, at least in part, to betaines.
Effect of Foliar Applications of Glycinebetaine on Stress Tolerance, Growth, and Yield of Spring Cereals and Summer Turnip Rape in Finland
TLDR
The results indicated that betaine has no actual potential in Finland for the principal grain crops but further studies are needed in stress prone environments to assess the potential of betaine treatments for preventing crop failures.
TRANSLOCATION AND METABOLISM OF GLYCINE BETAINE IN NODULATED ALFALFA PLANTS SUBJECTED TO SALT STRESS
TLDR
Analysis of the redistribution of radioactivity among plant organs during the chase period shows that glycine betaine was translocated from the roots to the nodules of salinized plants, so that during this period salinization resulted in a 91% increase in nodule radioactivity, whereas a 34% decrease was observed in control plants.
An evaluation of the effect of exogenous glycinebetaine on the growth and yield of soybean: timing of application, watering regimes and cultivars
TLDR
The results indicate that foliar-applied glycinebetaine possesses anti-transpirant properties and has the potential to improve drought tolerance and reduce the amount of water used for irrigation, without any significant decrease in economic yield.
The role of betaines in alkaline extracts of Ascophyllum nodosum in the reduction of Meloidogyne javanica and M. incognita infestations of tomato plants
TLDR
Soil application to the roots of tomato plants of a commercially available alkaJine extract of the brown alga resulted in a significant reduction in the number of second stage juveniles of both Meloidogynejavanica and 'W.
Growth response of pea and summer turnip rape to foliar application of glycinebetaine
TLDR
The aims of this study were to determine the effect of foliar application of glycinebetaine on biomass accumulation and photosynthetic capacity of turnip rape and pea and to increase relative growth rate of both crops, especially when drought‐stressed and when recovering from drought.
Effect of foliar applications of glycinebetaine on stomatal conductance, abscisic acid and solute concentrations in leaves of salt- or drought-stressed tomato
TLDR
The results indicate that applied glycinebetaine was involved in regulation of stomatal conductance but not via ABA metabolism or water relations, and may have been accumulated in specific cells or cellular compartments, with consequences forStomatal functions.
