Beetroot grows best in cool weather, but it can be planted throughout the year. The best time to plant is from early spring to early summer (August, September, October) and again late in summer and into autumn (February, March, April). These are the cool periods of the year. Beetroot does not grow well in summer when it is very hot, neither does it grow well in the middle of winter when it is very cold. IT is a short duration crop (80-90 days)
