Abstract: 
Relative surface area of sugerbeet is an important criteria in respiration rate and hence sugar loss in silo. Measuring relative surface of sugarbeet is very difficult in practic, therefore it is very important to have a rapid and precise method for estimating the sugarbeet relative surface. In this research, correlation between relative surface area and weight of sugarbeet was investigated. Results showed that there is a high correlation between these two criteria (R2=0/96) and therefore by the used model sugarbeet relative surface area can be estimated. On the other hand by disregarding the sugarbeets with relative surface area greater than 1cm2/g from the sugarbeet lots in silo enhancement of sugar yield was achieved. Mean values of sugar yield for Jowein, Ghahestan and Torbat Heidarieh were 12.6, 6/0 and 6.15% respectively.
