Good year for sugar beets
"We're on pace for a decent year. We won't know final numbers until the end of harvest, but our growers are expecting another good year.”
Griff acknowledged this year’s crop has taken more water than usual with some growers speeding up watering cycles to ensure beets and the soil remain moist.
"That's been a little bit of a challenge. But if there's one thing to know about farmers, it's that they are experts at dealing with and overcoming challenges.”
Griff says while the additional heat has served as an obstacle, he said it has not been detrimental to the crop.
