    Storage of Sugarbeet

Here’s how to store sugarbeets properly and minimise storage losses and sugar losses

In the future, longer processing campaigns will be targeted in Germany. Consequently, the amount of beets to be stored, storage days and thus the risk of storage losses will increase. However, storage losses cannot be completely avoided.

Keep sugar losses low

Storing sugarbeet causes sugar losses and the accumulation of undesirable ingredients such as invert sugar, which can severely affect the processing quality of the beet in the factory.

The main causes of conversion processes during storage are:

  • Respiration
  • Wound healing
  • Pathogen attack

In addition, there are other factors such as the conditions of storage, harvesting and growing, which influence the level of storage losses of sugarbeets.
