While there is a quota of 6 million tons for sugar beet, which started production hours in April, Konya has a 10 percent increase in yield compared to last year. With the productions, most of the sugar beet needs in Turkey are met from the Konya Plain. The sugar beet, which was planted 180 days ago, is harvested by the farmers by working hard day and night in the field. The beets, which are dismantled with the help of machinery, are loaded on trucks and transported to the factories. Stating that the harvest will end as of December, experts stated that sugar beet has been very productive this year in terms of yield and quality.
