Video: Good early sugar beet yields as harvesting speeds up
Tuesday, October 5, 2021
Sugar beet harvesting is kicking off with promising yields for one Suffolk farmer amid more optimism among growers due to low disease levels and a price rise in the pipeline. James Forrest has had to cope with two previous very wet autumns when lifting sugar beet on his heavy land, but harvesting progress this season has been a lot easier. His early beet lifts are showing yields of 70-80t/ha, in line with what he would expect from early-harvested crops, and coming out of the ground well after recent rain. “This season’s beet looks a better crop with more potential than last year, and we are hoping to get autumn cereals in after lifting the beet,” he tells Farmers Weekly.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
