Low sugar content hard hit for Wyo. beet farmers

Posted: Updated:

Sugar beet farmers in Wyoming are fretting about low sugar prices and low sugar content in the beets they've recently pulled from the ground.
 
Beet prices could be down by as much as half this year.

Sugar beet farmers say the amount of sugar in the beets they've grown in Wyoming this year is down.

Lower sugar prices and a lower sugar content means that this year was less profitable for growers than in the past.
 
The low prices also result from an increase in sugar imports from outside the country.
