Meeting of German Beet Growers: Specialist and Winter Meetings 2021/22
Like the previous specialist meetings, those in December 2021 also took place digitally. A wide audience was able to hear content on the topics of leaf diseases, rizomania and girdle scab. In the chat, the audience could ask their questions, which were then answered by the various speakers from the Chamber of Agriculture or Nordzucker. Further specialist events on the topics of fertilisation and weed control will take place on 15 February 2022 at 9 and 11 am. The topic of insect pests will then follow on 9 March 2022. You can find the dates in the AgriPortal calendar.
The winter events under the title “Campaign compact” also took place in digital form on 8 and 9 February 2022 for the individual regions. Speakers from the sugar beet growers’ associations and Nordzucker highlighted the past vegetation and evaluated the campaign. In addition to the sugar beet prices for the 2021/22 campaign, other economic aspects of sugar beet cultivation were considered. In his welcoming address, Dr Lars Gorissen, Chairman of the Board of Management and responsible for the Agri Division, also referred to the pleasing development of sugar prices and thus also beet prices. He also expressly thanked all those involved in the campaign for their good cooperation and mutual support when problems arose.
