Hey guys. So we have about 400 acres of sugar beets up right now jus putting on true leafs. forecast is showing anywhere from 25-30 for tonight/tomorrow morning. I know for you guys up in Canada that is warm:22: but in ND for May 19 record is 29. We are just coming off 5 inches of rain in the last 8-9 days. Anyone have any idea how cold these beets can withstand before i'm replanting and any overall info from you boys in Canada that deal with these freezing temps on a regular basis. Thanks!

I know our canola will be borderline ok hopefully the minor frosts we have had lately will have toughened it up. Most broadleafs are not happy with frost and my beet knowledge is mainly just the harvesting part. Where is the growing point on the beets right now? If it is still underground you will hopefully be ok.
