(WDAY TV) -- Sugar beet growers along the Red River Valley are having a sweet harvest this year.

The Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative and American Crystal Sugar report the sugar content in beets is up nearly 20 percent.

An American Crystal Sugar spokesman says that's the highest sugar content ever recorded by the company. Crystal Sugar members are expected to get about 65-dollars a ton up from less than 60-dollars a ton last year.

Processing is expected to continue through May.
