    For the second year in a row, by autumn, beet leaves become wrinkled, with brown-red round spots, which eventually turn into holes. Is it some kind of disease?

      - It looks like your beets are infected with phomosis. And since the problem has been occurring for more than a year, most likely you do not follow the rules of crop rotation - this is the main mistake. In general, beet phomosis can and should be fought. In addition to observing crop rotation, weeds should be dug out in a timely manner, plant debris should be destroyed and the soil should be dug up before winter.
      Beet seeds before sowing must be disinfected in a pink solution of potassium permanganate.
      It is desirable to grow varieties resistant to phomosis (Bordeaux 237, Single-growth).
      In the future, if you notice signs of illness, feed brown beets. You don’t need much, add 3 g per 1 sq.m. to the soil. Spray the leaves with a solution of boric acid (0,5 tsp per bucket of water).
