“We just had a big crop,” Jobman said.
The Lovell district yield averaged 28.9 tons of sugar beets per acre, “which is extremely good. The highest ever,” he said.
Beets stored at receiving stations since the harvest wrapped up in the fall are in good condition, Jobman said. Growers deliver the beets to receiving stations, where they are stored until they can be trucked to the factory.
The Lovell factory will process sugar beets 24 hours per day until the campaign concludes. Jobman said the growers will be paid for the crop according to the schedule determined by their contracts with the company.
“The prices that the farmers are receiving are excellent,” he said.
