Pre-pile harvest is underway for American Crystal Sugar Company. Fisher, Minnesota farmer Curt Knutson is optimistic about the harvest. “I think we’ll have lower sugar content, but we could make up for it in tonnage.” Knutson says growing conditions aren’t bad in the middle of the Red River Valley. “In the Cavalier area all the way to the Canadian border it’s been dry. South of Moorhead, it’s been wet. It goes from one extreme to another, somewhat normal for the Red River Valley.”
