American Crystal Sugar Company general agronomist, Tyler Grove, remains concerned about the effects the lingering cold, wet weather will have on seedling beets.
“It’s going to take some investigative work by the staff, growers, and consultants to try to sort out what’s out there and what remains,” he said. “The weather forecast doesn’t look too conducive to try to sort that out, even in the short term, so we have to wait until this system passes and see what we have.”
Grove reminds growers to be patient once things start drying and warming up.
“The thing about planting is you only get one shot a really good seedbed,” he continued. “With seed choices and all the seed treatments that are out there… Choose your varieties and locations wisely and be cognitive that you might not get exactly what you want for seed and seed options the next time.”

Mohamed Khan chats with Mick Kjar on Farm Talk on AgNews 890am.
Mohamed Khan chatted with Mick Kjar on Farm Talk Tuesday and indicated that American Crystal has roughly 80,000 acres planted so far. Most of that has been planted in the southern area of American Crystal's region. In the northern region, a small amount of sugarbeets have been planted, but they need things to dry out and warm up.
Khan indicated that in the American Crystal growing area, the ideal planting date over the last 25-30 years has been April 25th. However, nearly the entire American Crystal region has received significant snowfall, which has abruptly halted planting for the last several days and will continue to do so until about the middle of next week.

Hilleshög brand hybrids help growers manage regional pests and achieve comprehensive root health.
For the 2017 growing season, Syngenta will introduce five new Hilleshög® brand sugarbeet hybrids tailored to combat regional pest issues and deliver top genetic performance.
The new sugarbeet hybrids feature excellent sugar content and improved disease and pest tolerance traits. The following cooperatives will offer the specific hybrids noted:
Hybrid Selection Is Key
“Hilleshög offers high-performing sugarbeet hybrids with key disease traits to meet the challenges of each unique growing area,” says Tyler Ring, sugarbeet portfolio head at Syngenta. “Our hybrid portfolio is the result of innovative R&D practices, which include localized disease screening, breeding, hybrid selection and technology evaluation at specially designed facilities throughout the beet growing regions of the U.S. This leads to a more consistent on-farm experience year after year.”
Selecting the correct hybrid is essential to raising a healthy sugarbeet crop. Sugarbeet growers can connect with their local Hilleshög sales agent or local sugar co-op agriculturist to discuss field history and recent trials to gauge how well a specific hybrid might perform for them from a quality and yield perspective. These experts can also help growers determine which disease tolerance traits are most important to their acreage.
Protecting the Seed Is Important Too
To help ensure optimum root health, strong stands and maximum yield potential, seed protection is critical. Quality seed treatments for sugarbeets help prevent the spread of plant diseases and keep insects at bay, increase root mass and seedling vigor from day one.
"Hilleshög offers high-performing sugarbeet hybrids with key disease traits to meet the challenges of each unique growing area."
Seed treatments like CruiserMaxx® Sugarbeets seed treatment insecticide/fungicide, a combination of separately registered products; Vibrance® seed treatment fungicide; or Clariva® pn seed treatment nematicide will help growers achieve comprehensive root health and minimize damage from yield-robbing pests and diseases.
By pairing quality Hilleshög brand sugarbeet hybrids with the strength of Syngenta seed treatments, growers can set up their young sugarbeet crop for a successful season.
