American Crystal Sugar slashing payment to beet growers
MOORHEAD — American Crystal Sugar Co. is warning its growers that the checks they will get for the crop just harvested will be much smaller than the checks they received after last year’s harvest.
Payments for this year’s crop, which start going out this month, will be $38 per ton, compared to the $68.41 per ton growers received for the crop harvested in 2012, Dave Berg, the company’s CEO, said in a phone interview Monday.
