Growers Should Plan Ahead for Energy Beet Production, North Dakota University says
Many growers are taking serious consideration towards the production of a new industrial crop called energy beets. These sugar beets are bred to be used in the biofuel market and towards industrial purposes. North Dakota University’s Extension service is reminding growers to be mindful of what herbicides they use on this year’s growing season. The warning refers to the damage that may be incurred by several common herbicides once farmers decide to grow the bio-beet.
