Costs of Harvesting Sugar Beets, A First Year Experience, Central New York, 1965
Stanton, B.F.; Hazell, Peter
This report summarizes the experiences of 17 operators of sugar beet harvesting equipment. All the operators were located in counties close to the processing plant. Most of the sugar beets harvested were grown on upland soils which included some gravel and small rocks. While these records represent only 17 men's experiences, they harvested 2,244 acres of beets, about 12 percent of the total acres harvested in the State and slightly more than 12 percent of the total tonnage.
