Cristal Union has announced a new price target for sugar beet in 2023 for the cooperative group, which is mobilizing to help its members following the announcement by the Court of Justice of the European Union to prohibit derogations from the use of neonicotinoids for beet seeds. The figure of 45 € / t of beet is a strong increase in remuneration for the next season. Last November, Cristal Union spoke of a target of 40 € / t. "Our role as a cooperative is to help our members get through this," says Olivier de Bohan, President of Cristal Union. "This is why, in addition to technical support to define the best intervention protocols by region, we have taken the decision to raise the price target for beet for the 2023 harvest to €45 per tonne at 16°. In this context, we are sending a strong signal to our cooperators to support them and encourage them to maintain or even increase their beet areas".Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
