2021-10-14T10:09:54.323Z

According to the state farmers' association, the sugar beet harvest got off to a good start in the first four weeks or so. In Lower Saxony, a better harvest is expected than in the previous year, the rural people said on request. "Nationwide, the yields are so far at an above-average level," said an association spokeswoman for the German Press Agency.



According to the state farmers' association, the sugar beet harvest got off to a good start in the first four weeks or so.

In Lower Saxony, a better harvest is expected than in the previous year, the rural people said on request.

"Nationwide, the yields are so far at an above-average level," said an association spokeswoman for the German Press Agency.

Hanover / Braunschweig - The Economic Association of Sugar (WVZ) expects sugar production of just under 4.5 million tons in Germany.

That would be around 400,000 tons more than last year, as the rural people announced on Thursday.

"The sugar content is currently below the five-year average due to the lack of hours of sunshine," said Eckhard Hinrichs, chairman of the umbrella association for North German sugar beet growers (DNZ), the rural people's press service.

Instead, the beets are bigger and thicker than usual.

For northern Germany, Hinrichs currently expects a sugar yield of around 13 tonnes per hectare.

The Nordzucker Group in Braunschweig draws a similar interim balance for the current harvest season.

"We are recording good beet yields thanks to higher rainfall than in the previous year, but with below-average sugar content," said a company spokesman.

This is due to insufficient solar radiation in the summer months and September.

The beet campaign is expected to continue into the second half of January.

Overall, Nordzucker expects production to be the same as last year.
