Bryce Jorgensen, Savage, averaged 29 tons per acre and 20.09% sugar. To qualify for this exclusive club, a sugar beet producer must average over 20 tons per acre and 20% sugar for the entire crop. Jorgensen has been farming for a little over eight years.

Mortenson Farm Partnership:

The Mortenson Farm Partnership, Buford, ND, averaged 26 tons per acre and a district high of 20.17% sugar over 850 acres. The Mortenson Farm Partnership consists of Joe Mortenson, his dad, Steve Mortenson, and about nine full-time hired hands. The Mortensons have had many years of experience growing sugar beets. The sugar beet growing operation started many years ago with Joe's grandfather, Emery Baxter, who was a long-time Buford area farmer.
