January 4, 2017

Pest damage differs region to region, state to state, county to county, and even field to field. Because of this, selecting the correct sugarbeet hybrid is essential to raising a healthy crop.

Syngenta will introduce 5 new Hilleshög® brand sugarbeet hybrids tailored to combat regional pest issues and to help deliver top genetic performance for this growing season. The new sugarbeet hybrids feature excellent sugar content and improved disease and pest tolerance traits. The following cooperatives will offer the specific hybrids noted:

  • American Crystal Sugar Cooperative: HIL9707, HIL9708
  • Michigan Sugar: HIL9732NT, NT9607RR
  • Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Cooperative: HIL9739

Sugarbeet growers can connect with their local Hilleshög sales agent or local sugar co-op agriculturist to discuss field history and recent trials to gauge how well a specific hybrid might perform for them from a quality and yield perspective. These experts can also help growers determine which disease tolerance traits are most important to their acreage.

By pairing quality Hilleshög brand sugarbeet hybrids with the strength of seed treatments, growers can set up their young sugarbeet crop for a successful season.
