Sugarbeet Seed Priming

Xbeet® is our industry-leading 3rd generation sugarbeet seed priming technology. Until the launch of Xbeet® plus in the United Kingdom, the UK market had 100% Xbeet® treated sugar beet seed. 30% of the US market also use Xbeet®, and China and Europe are growth markets.

Xbeet® is an insurance policy for your sugar beet crop. With unpredictable weather conditions, Xbeet® works to enhance a sugarbeet seed’s potential in its early development, allowing it the strength to survive and thrive in its natural environment.

Key Benefits

  • Faster Speed of Emergence: To maximize the amount of sunlight captured by the crop
  • Increased Tolerance in Stressful Conditions: To protect against adverse weather conditions
  • Improved Uniformity: To optimize harvesting performance
  • Increased Yield: To increase income per hectare for the Grower

Sugarbeet Grower Testimonial

“It’s not a question of why use Xbeet®, it has to be why not use Xbeet®! I still can’t think of a reason why not to. With today’s knowledge base, it is vital to get sugar beets off to a rapid start so my crop can achieve a full canopy as soon as possible to give it the best chance to reach its full potential, and Xbeet® does just that.”
