Slightly Above Average Yields For Amalgamated

Published online: Oct 04, 2006
Amalgamated Sugar Co. began last week collecting beets from area growers for processing at its Twin Falls and Paul factories. As part of its "early harvest," Amalgamated invited select growers to transport beets to dozens of satellite collection stations throughout Magic Valley. Next month, all other growers will make the haul. Growers can expect beet yields to average a little bit more than 28 tons per acre, the sugar content will likely hit at least the average of 17 percent.
