Rain concerns sugar beet growers

FARGO, ND. -- American Crystal Sugar President and CEO Dave Berg is hoping for some warmer weather to get fields ready for planting.

He says a small percentage of field work has started, but recent rains have hampered things.

Berg says that creates some anxiety as the co-op looks to have nearly 420-thousand acres of sugar beets planted this year.

After seeing the spring planting delayed into late May and early June last year, Berg says the conditions are a bit scary.

He says those concerns are being share by all commodity groups.
