Degas: Competitively priced and consistently good yields

A popular variety in UK fields in 2018, 2019 and 2020, Degas has good yields, higher than average sugar content and is suitable for normal sowings.

Higher sugar content helps to deliver increased income and Degas is higher than average sugar content in each of the last three years of National trials. This also makes Degas worth considering as a cost-effective “transport” variety, if haulage is from a greater than average distance. Degas is a competitively-priced, neat and tidy sugar beet, bred to yield increased profits for UK growers.

Degas is already a commercial variety and National Listed in France and Denmark and offers UK growers another useful, high-performance genetic on the 2021 Recommended List at a realistic and competitive price.

All in all, a neat and tidy sugar beet with very large tops and good looking uniform roots.
