As sugarbeet farmers prepare for spring, SES VanderHave Regional Sales Manager Nick Revier says work remains for the 2019 crop. “There’s a lot of ground that has to get in shape and there’s a lot of decisions that need to be made yet.” Acres are also shifting with joint ventures being negotiated. With the number of beets in the ground, the field conditions are a challenge. “Those acres will probably be the last thing that is planted. Our biggest issue is what are we going to do with the corn. A lot of that corn has a lot of snow in them and the ground isn’t frozen very deep so there is a lot of mud in these corn fields.”
