(WDAY TV) - It's the earliest it's ever started. Today, the sugar beet pre-pile gets underway.

Processing factories in Drayton, Hillsboro, Moorhead, East Grand Forks and Crookston are starting about two-weeks earlier than normal.

Experts say it's been a favorable growing season because the beets got in the fields in April, instead of mid-June like last year.

Full harvest starts October 1st. Officials say this year could produce a record yield.
