This dataset represents the production of 1 kg of sugar beet root and 0.67 kg of sugar beet crown and leaf (both fresh matter; sugar beet crown and leaf is labelled 'biowaste'). The yield of sugar beet root is 77640 kg/ha at a moisture content at storage of 77%, the yield of sugar beet crown and leaf is 51760 kg/ha at a moisture content of 86%.

Sugar beet crown and leaf are only harvested in 0.5% of the cases. This dataset is parameterized with respect to the fraction of crown and leaf harvested. The default fraction of harvested crown and leaf is 0.5%, exchanges in the dataset represent weighted averages of 99.5% of crown and leaf non-harvested and 0.5% harvested. Changes in this fraction will affect corresponing machine processes and direct field emissions, amount of the by product and CO2 bound from atmosphere in exported products.
Undefined unit processes (UPRs) are the unlinked, multi-product activity datasets that form the basis for all of the system models available in the ecoinvent database. This is the way the datasets are obtained and entered into the database by the data providers. These activity datasets are useful for investigating the environmental impacts of a specific activity (gate-to-gate), without regard to its upstream or downstream impacts.
