      Benjamin Tingley Rogers (), the American-born founder of BC Sugar, had significant familial ties to the sugar industry and in moved to Vancouver to begin his own sugar refinery business. He quickly gained the support of the CPR; he was notoriously anti-union and anti-Asian; and by the time of his death, a wealthy man who steadfastly refused to be involved . A sugar beet is a plant whose root contains a high concentration of sucrose and which is grown commercially for sugar production. In plant breeding it is known as the Altissima cultivar group of the common beet (Beta vulgaris). Together with other beet cultivars, such as beetroot and chard, it belongs to the subspecies Beta vulgaris subsp. vulgaris. Its closest wild relative is the sea beet.

      Sugar is the generic name for sweet-tasting, soluble carbohydrates, many of which are used in food. Table sugar, granulated sugar, or regular sugar, refers to sucrose, a disaccharide composed of glucose and fructose.. Simple sugars, also called monosaccharides, include glucose, fructose, and nd sugars, also called disaccharides or double . The sugar beet was grown as a garden vegetable and for fodder long before it was valued for its sugar content. Sugar was produced experimentally from beets in Germany in by chemist Andreas Marggraf, but the first beet-sugar factory was built in in Silesia (now in Poland). Napoleon became interested in the process in because the British blockade had cut off .

      three classes in the sugar beet system At the top was the "aristocracy", Canadian Sugar Factories — as the Utah-Idaho Company called its Alberta subsidiary. With an absolute monopoly over all beet sugar production in the province the company owned the indispensible means of making and market­ ing the finished product. Snow and frost damage has brought the sugar beet harvest in Southern Alberta to an end. Rogers Sugar, which owns the only Canadian sugar beet processing facility located in Taber, AB, made the announcement Thursday, November 7, saying the severe Alberta winter weather forced them to terminate the harvest.

Table 1 shows a historical dataon sugar beet production in Alberta from to The 3. data reported include acres contracted, acres planted and harvested, tonnage harvested, yield per acre and price per tonne received by beet producers.

The Economics Branch of Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) have been monitoring sugar beet production costs and returns since the early 's.

This program is a valuable source of information on benchmarks (averages) for sugar beets grown in Alberta. Table 1 presents a historical account of sugar beet production in Alberta from to As a result of contractual difficulties there were no sugar beets grown in During the last thirty-one (31) years, contracted area under sugar beets in Alberta has.

The Alberta sugar beet industry is centered in the Taber area, where Redpath Sugar operates a processing plant. The ASBG president said farmers are paid according to the quality of their beets they deliver to the plant.

Expectations for this year are for an average quality, which he said should fetch $$52 per tonne. sugar beet production moved out of Northern Europe into warmer zones, endemic diseases were encountered that severely limited yield and for which there were no known resistances (Lewellen, ).

Sugar beets are one of Alberta's main irrigated crops and Alberta is the only province to produce sugar from sugar beets.

Economics of sugar beet production in Alberta Alberta farms plant more t acres of beets each year for processing at Taber. Taber's sugar beet processing plant is the only one of its kind in the country.

The plant has a processing capacity ofThe sweetest part is that the Alberta Sugar Beet Growers (ASBG) represents the Southern Alberta farm families who grow sugar beets to make this % Canadian Product.

Over farm families have been growing sugar beets to help provide a sustainable and ethical source of sugar to Canadian families since World sugar production has been declining between and and now stands at M t (USDA, b). The majority, approximately 75%, is derived from sugarcane grown on 20 M ha.

Sugar beet is grown on 5 M ha, producing M t of beets or 42 M t sugar. The world area of sugar beet cultivation has been stable for the past 15 years.

Rogers Sugar, which owns the only Canadian sugar beet processing facility located in Taber, AB, made the announcement Thursday, November 7, saying the severe Alberta winter weather forced them to terminate the harvest.

In sugar beets supplied 5% of the world's sugar. The first refinery to extract sugar from sugar beets in Canada was established at Farnham, Québec, in Today, approximately 25% of the sugar used worldwide and 10% of Canadian requirements is produced from them.

Sugar beets are adaptable to a wide range of soils and climates. In North. Beet sugar produced in Alberta from Alberta sugar beets is the only sugar that qualifies to be exported to US quotas for "originating" Canadian sugar. Production in the Taber facility includes granulated and powdered sugars in several package sizes.

There are also two types of liquid sugar produced in Taber, liquid sucrose and liquid invert sugar. Sugar decreased Cents/LB or % since the beginning ofaccording to trading on a contract for difference (CFD) that tracks the benchmark market for this commodity.

Historically, Sugar reached an all time high of in November of crop canopy (Jensen et al., ). A linear relationship has generally been found between total aboveground dry matter production and crop evapotranspiration (ET c) for most irrigated crops and between the marketable yield and ET c for crops such as corn, potato, sugar beet, and wheat (Letey et al., ).

Water stress decreases the water potential. ASBG vs British Columbia Sugar Company – Loss Clause. — — 21 cm of textual records. — The Alberta Sugar Beet Growers’ Marketing Board sued the British Columbia Sugar Refining Company over the company’s failure to share growers’ losses due to normal shrinkage and spoilage of store sugar beets.

In the last 2 yr of study, bean yield and NI in CONS rotations were significantly higher than bean in CONV due to the undercutting of bean in CONS rotations; therefore, it is possible that the long‐term use of undercutting practices may result in a greater.

located in or near production areas to minimize trans-portation costs of hauling beets and deterioration of sugar content after the beets are harvested. InU.S. farm-ers planted sugarbeets on million acres and produced million tons of beets The national sugarbeet price averaged $ per ton in (USDA, NASS, ).

Why Sugar Beets are Preferable to Corn for Ethanol Production By Al Fin -AM CST focusing on beet ethanol makes sense for a number of reasons. 17% sucrose content in sugar beets, % impurities, and 98% effectiveness of ethanol fermentation). Rozman et al. (a) developed a spreadsheet technologic economic model for the feasibility analysis of the sugar beet plant.

This model is used for the (1) assessment of sugar beet production costs, (2) sugar beet processing costs and fac. A systematic literature review identified published research on the economics of crop production robots and automation.

The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) (Moher et al. ) approach was followed for reporting the searches, screening and synthesis. The searches were restricted to those published in English and between January .ALBERTA, Canada – Beet juice can beat snow and ice in winter road conditions, but the stuff being used in Calgary and elsewhere in Western Canada does not come from Alberta-grown sugar beets.

Alberta Sugar Beet Growers would like to change that because another use for their product could mean more acres and higher economic returns.
