The 2000 crop went into storage in good shape because of the attention to root condition by shareholders and harvest crews and relatively low tare. If we experience normal to below normal temperatures during the upcoming storage season, our storage losses should be near normal.

A special thanks is due all shareholders for delivering clean beets that were cool enough to store and frost free.

In General, our delivery plan is as follows:

Splitting Piles:

  1. Split the storage piles that are greater than 20’ in height. Piles higher than 20’ do not dissipate the heat or cool down as fast as a lower pile.
  2. Split or strip the storage piles 20’ in height or less. Once the high piles have been split, we can split the lower piles as long as they are wide enough mass and a square top on the shoulders. If this can’t be accomplished, the pile will be stripped where one side of the pile is picked up.
  3. Pick up shoulders of split piles 20’ in height or less. Pile temperatures can fluctuate with the ambient air temperature in these lower shoulders because there is less mass to keep cold. There is also a greater pile surface to tons pile ratio, which is less desirable.
  4. Pick up shoulders of split piles greater than 20’. These will be the last non deep freeze beets to be processed.

Deep Freeze:

  1. Deep freeze at outside stations.
  2. Outside deep freeze in the factory yards.
  3. Deep freeze buildings.
