Sugar Beet - a Strategic UK Crop
Sugar beet is a strategic crop within the arable rotation and in many areas of the country forms a mainstay of agricultural economy.
In an international context, the UK beet sugar industry is renowned as highly efficient and has established itself as the lowest-cost producer in the European Union.
Productivity of the UK sugar beet crop has constantly increased since the early 1970s due to improvements in crop management, technical innovation and varieties.
The British Beet Research Organisation (BBRO) makes a significant contribution to this progress and is committed to support UK beet sugar as an industry leader.
