Starting with the growing season 2014, Maribo sugar beet seed will be available to US growers.
Crop Production Services (CPS), a premier agricultural retail supplier in the American markets – will be the sole distributor for the MARIBO brand. CPS has retail locations throughout the sugar beet growing area in the United States and provides customers with crop service products including fertilizer, seed, and crop protection products, as well as additional agronomic services to farmers.
With a portfolio of unique varieties, focused on high sugar yield, Maribo varieties will provide a strong option for growers to consider in achieving their high yield goals.
The Maribo varieties will be commercially available in 2014 for growers in the American Crystal, Minn-Dak, and Southern Minnesota growing regions pending variety approvals.
Currently Maribo varieties are being tested in official variety trials in the American Crystal, Minn Dak, Southern Minnesota, Michigan, Western Sugar South, and Amalgamated Sugar markets with plans to expand the testing into Wyoming Sugar, Western Sugar North, and Sidney Sugars markets in 2014.
We are very pleased that the MARIBO brand is back in the US market, and that the MARIBO brand still has positive name recognition after 20 years of absence in the market.
