Farming Simulator 19 – Sugar beet Guide

Root crop such as beetroots are the most problematic crop to harvest in Farming Simulator 19. You need a field, special planters and harvesters, but also:

  • You have to plow your field before every planting.
  • Root crops can’t be stored in silos – store them in semi-trailers, sell them after harvesting or put on the ground. Use belt system to load them on a semi-trailer – this process is automatic. Build a carport to manage the space better.
  • Potatoes and beetroots can also be stored on pallets! Use Grimme RH 24-60 (Belt system) to place them on pallets.

Requires: plow, any of the planters, harvester with a header for sugar beetroots, semi-trailers with high capacity.

Usage: as food for: pigs; as a product for sale – 1ha of potatoes can give you around $30,000.

Additional information:

  • 1ha will give you about 110,000 liters.
  • Just like potatoes, you can load sugar beets on pallets or collect them from the ground by using a belt system.
  • Thanks to the special collection head (you can find them near beetroot harvesters), you can leave beetroots on the ground and collect them later.
  • Potatoes give you more money. However, beets are faster to collect, and the required machines are cheaper.

How to cultivate Sugar beet in Farming Simulator 19?

Sugar beet is easier and cheaper to grow than potatoes, but the profits generated by it are also smaller. To plant beets it is enough to have any planter and a ploughed field.

Grimme Rootster 604 is quite a good harvester for the beginning.

To collect beets from the field, a cheaper option will be to buy the Grimme FT 300, which you attach to the front of the tractor, and the Grimme Rootster 604, which is attached to the rear. Compared to potato harvesters, this one has no disadvantages – it’s fast and reliable when it comes to its use by employees.

Ropa Panther 2 – self-propelled, self-sufficient, pure driving pleasure.

A self-propelled combine harvester, however, is comparatively more expensive, but also very efficient. In the Beet growing technology tab in the Vehicles section you will find as many as three models of combine harvesters: Ropa Panther 2,Tiger 6 XL and Holmer Terra Dos T4-40. They differ in the capacity and width of the headers. The headers can be found in the Beet growing technology in the following shop section: Tools. Each machine has a corresponding beet header. These combine harvesters work perfectly and reliably, and working with them is pure pleasure.

The additional machines you will find in the self-propelled harvester section are ROPA Maus 5 and Holmer Terra Felis 3. Don’t get confused – they are not for harvesting beets, but only for lifting them from the ground. In other words: you can store the beets in the field – instead of driving the tractor behind the combine harvester, pour the crop directly onto the field. Then you can collect the crop in a semi-trailer using this machine in no time at all. However, this is a tool that is only used for a few hectares of fields.
