American Crystal Sugar Company shareholders have received a final 2021 gross beet payment of $65 per ton. The forecast for the current growing season is a gross payment of $71 per ton. The increase is due to higher sugar, pulp and molasses net selling prices and higher sugar content. That’s partially offset by higher operating costs and lower sugar recovery. American Crystal will mail the 2022 crop payment on Tuesday. These payments will be based on 65 percent of the forecasted net payment of $67.
