Cultivated for centuries, sugar beets account for almost all sugar production in Europe. It is the most important plant for natural sugar production after sugar canes.
In the plant’s first year it forms a large root that can weigh up to 2 kg and contain high levels of sucrose. After harvest, the roots are processed to obtain fine-grain, refined white sugar.
Our farm in Lithuania, with its temperate climate, rich soils and regular precipitation, provides the ideal growing conditions for sugar beets.
