“What sugar beet varieties should I grow?”

What sugar beet should I grow?

We are often asked the question, “What sugar beet should I grow?”  Since the answer is not always a Strube variety, here are some suggestions.

Most growers will choose 2 – 4 sugar beet varieties per season and you should be looking for a portfolio which combines high yield with yield security and perhaps some genetic diversity.

Smaller Contracts:

For smaller contracts, we would suggest one reliable variety (Haydn) plus one newer variety. More than one variety adds interest and allows a useful comparison and evaluation in the field.

Medium to larger-sized contracts:

For medium to larger sized contracts, one or two reliable varieties (Haydn + Cayman) plus one or two newer varieties (perhaps Degas, if earlier drilling is foreseen).
