As sugarbeet planting season quickly approaches, North Dakota State University—funded by the Red River Valley Sugarbeet Growers Association R&E board—put on planter test stand clinics in the American Crystal region, to help growers prepare for planting their sugarbeet seed. Betaseed hosted two of the clinics and sponsored coffee and lunch at various other locations.

At these events growers could test their planter units, and check for seed spacing and worn parts . The local Betaseed sales team assists at these events to help support the growers with any questions or issues they may have.

“Research has shown that the test stand clinics historically have saved growers from lost revenue,” says Betaseed sales manager Lynn Dusek. “Any issues they can detect now will help avoid any potential issues in the field.”

Betaseed, headquartered in Bloomington, Minn., is North America’s premier sugarbeet seed company. From its start in 1970, Betaseed has maintained a longstanding commitment to the beet sugar industry, with research and seed production operations in several states and marketing seed to all sugarbeet markets.
