POWELL, Wyo. (AP) — This year's sugar beet crop in the Lovell area in north-central Wyoming was the second-best on record.
Harvests averaged just over 28.8 tons per acre. The 2011 crop still holds the record at just under 28.9 tons per acre.
The Powell Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/UOKhQl) growers in the district delivered just under half a million tons of beets. That will be processed into some 1.2 million bags of sugar weighing 100 pounds each.
