FISHER, Minn. - Trucks are hauling beets all throughout the Red River Valley as pre-pile season starts.
Expect to see trucks carrying thousands of pounds of the sweet crop on roads and highways.
Companies like Adams Family Farms are currently hiring truckers for the job.
Farmers say this summer started out perfect but conditions are too dry for some crops.
Beets are smaller this year in some areas but could contain a lot of sugar.
They say drivers should share the road with trucks.
“Watch out on the roads - be careful. Eight weeks early from main harvest,” said Farmer Chris Adams.
Farmers say harvest is set to start October 1st and could run anywhere from about two weeks to about a month.
