American Crystal Sugar Co. finished slicing beets June 7 at its Hillsboro, N.D., plant — equaling a record-late season held by five other previous processing years, says Brian Ingulsrud, vice president for agriculture. The company had previously predicted surpassing its record, finishing June 8.

American Crystal started processing later in the fall of 2013 because it expected a 22- to 23-ton per acre crop, and ended up with a 25.2-ton crop because of unexpectedly. The June 7 record is now shared by 2014, 2013, 2008, 2007 and 1999 crop years.
