Abstract: Simply connected and adjoint groups of type $ {\mathrm E}_{6}$ over fields are considered. Let $ K$ be a field such that every polynomial of degree not exceeding six has a root. It is shown that any element of the adjoint group of type $ {\mathrm E}_{6}$ over $ K$ can be expressed as a product of at most eight root elements.
