Rain halts sugar beet harvest
A wet weekend has brought the Red River Valley sugar beet harvest to a halt.
American Crystal Sugar Company spokesman Jeff Schweitzer told WDAY AM Radio News that even under a best-case scenario, the harvest won't resume for several days.
Right now, the harvest is 68 percent complete. American Crystal growers plan to harvest 420,000 acres of sugar beets this year.
