The decision of re-sowing sugar beet is a last resort, not a decision to be taken lightly. A wide range of issues can cause an un-economic plant stand within the establishing crop such as frost, windblow and pest damage.

To complement our offer of EPD treated for UK growers, we are offering KWS Beet Seed Service to provide a peace of mind if re-sowing is necessary.

The Principle of Beet Seed Service

Should you need to re-sow your beet crop we will offer the replacement seed at 50% of the initial sale price of the seed.

For example, if you were to spend £180 per unit on KWS EPD treated seed and needed to re-sow, the seed cost for re-sowing would be £90 per unit.
