Current growers are confirming their requirements but the industry is expanding in 2017 and farmers who want to become a grower can contact British Sugar to register their interest and have a conversation about doing so, according to the company.

 

For a one-year contract, the sugar beet price is £22/t guaranteed minimum plus a market linked bonus, according to British Sugar.

 

Advantages of growing the crop include: opportunities for black-grass control, compliance with the 3-crop rule, yield, improvements to soil structure, biodiversity, ability to use neonicotinoid seed dressings and grower support, it added.
