Crop year 2011 started with a cool, wet spring. Many growers were unable to get into their fields until late April. There were some late frosts and severe weather conditions; but there were fewer replants, with 13,285 acres beets having to be replanted as compared with almost 53,000 acres of replants in 2010. Even with a late- planted crop, stands were excellent.
