I would not have know those pictures were from a phone. Seeing those pics, makes me miss the beet planting, having given up beet growing three years ago. Very good pictures, look foraward to seeing more posts from you.

Really good photos, have to try if my cameraphone is as good as yours. SE 880i

The Hürlimann, is it yours?
What model, year of make and hp?

Its nice to see some machinery in action, dont get me wrong but im quite tired of all the contractor images from Holland that are taken from distance or on the road.

How many hectares are you growing, and how is the yields i Croatia?

@Mattisborgen - Yes , Hurlimann is my tractor. I send only my maschinery on Farmphoto . Here is some more info : http://www.farmphoto.com/fpv2/message.aspx?mid=386919

I am growing about 200 hectares ( sugar beet , bier barley , winter wheat , soja bean ).
Sorry but dont understand question about yields :-[

Thanks for your answers.
My english isnt good either :-P

Here in Sweden you dont get paid as much as you used to for sugarbeets so many farmers have stopped or dont grow it as much as before.

Re: Sugar beet seeding in Croatia
That trend of descending price of sugar beet is present in Croatia too . Two years ago we have 20% bigger earnings on sugar beet root. We still earn about 1000 euro pro hectar - all expense deducted.

Re: Sugar beet seeding in Croatia
Ratako; nice pics and equipment.

Your 55-60 tonnes pro hectar, how much sugar do get from that - 16-18%?

In Sweden we get paid for the sugar and the freight cost is paid due to the total tonnes. So everybody try very hard to get high sugar % to keep the weight of the freight down!

Re: Sugar beet seeding in Croatia
First time last year my sugar beet had 16% sugar in it - it was great year for sugar percentage. My sugar beet average about 15% sugar in it or little less. We are also paid according to a sugar percentage but i can not achive sugar beet standard at 16% and i get paid less for same amount of sugar beet .
How is in Sweden with sugar beet , what is your tons per hectar and sugar percentage ? How much money do you get for yours sugar beet ?
Anyone else can answer too please :-D

Re: Sugar beet seeding in Croatia
If the conditions are good we can get a little bit over 18% sugar and a sugar harvest around 10 tonnes, app. 55 tonnes of beets. Normally higher beet tonnes gives lower sugar % and it is hard to come over 10 tonnes sugar/hectar. Normal yield is 8-9 tonnes of sugar pro hectar.

NOTE: I am not groowing beets, but my neighbours and friends are. We do not have enoungh of suitabel soils.
