This publication studies the potential of sugar beet to play a role in sugar production from the Atherton Tablelands area. It documents the sugar production from a number of sugar beet varieties accessed from a range of overseas seed companies, studies the effects of some different management practices on sugar yield and, using a simple gross margin analysis, looks at likely costs of production and returns.
