Sustainable beet cultivation

We are working to retain profitable and sustainable beet cultivation and are constantly seeking to increase the yield per hectare.

We intend to enhance the cultivation of sugar beet by:
  • improving the quality of sowing seeds
  • achieving the highest possible sugar yield per hectare
  • growing sugar beet with a high content of extractable sugar
  • making efficient use of fertilisers
  • minimising the use of crop protection agents
  • avoiding crop protection agents that harm the environment
  • reducing the soil attaching to the beet when lifted
  • optimising the logistics chain from the beet fields to the sugar factories by making maximum use of return loads of beet pulp from the factories to cattle farmers
  • ensuring the continuity of beet cultivation in the Netherlands.
