Evaluating Beet Varieties for Pre-Pile Campaign
Last week’s mud slowed down the pre-pile campaign for sugarbeet farmers, but conditions are improving. There has been a tendency for area sugarbeet processing companies to begin pre-pile earlier and earlier. “As a result, we started sampling varieties side-by-side, screening varieties to see what would work best for an August 15 harvest,” said SES VanderHave sales and marketing manager Nick Revier. “In two years of data, we have some statistical information that starts to point to some genetics for an early campaign. So if a grower knows that next year his cycle is going to be the first one harvesting, he needs something that is going to ton up enough that we can keep it in the lifter, but sweet enough so we can get those early harvest premiums.
