Successful sugarbeet harvest in America
The sugarbeet harvest of 2020 came to an end on November 20th.
The growers on the current contract had a wet, yet satisfactory growing season in comparison to last year’s contract. Up to 36 ton per acre was reached with a sugar content of 18-20%. Montana is the only region that did not have a satisfactory growing season, having to battle with the weather and a loss of up to 30% of their crop due to freezing temperatures.
The year 2020, was HOLMER Americas best sales year since their launch in 2011.
HOLMER’S harvesters are well represented in Michigan, Idaho, Montana, Minnesota, North
Dakota, and Wyoming. Many growers are more and more drawn to the self-propelled harvesters especially in wet seasons. Farmers that are interested in the HOLMER Terra Dos T4 sugarbeets harvesters are especially drawn to the driving assist systems and wide lifting units. The automatic single row depth guidance such as the EasyLift, increases the quality of the harvest and has some economic advantages in which 9 and 12 rows/lifting units are possible. The Terra Felis is another type of self-propelled sugarbeet loader that has gained popularity amongst the American sugarbeet growers.
