Minnesota sugarbeets


I came across a report that Minnesota sugarbeet growers took terrible 2013 losses--around $300/acre due to low yields/low prices. I used to work up in MN/Dakotas in the 1980s and 1990s, and at that time, sugarbeets were like growing gold. Very highprofit margins. Just curious to hear from anyone up there what has happened to that industry.
