    This looks like a good idea. What sort of yield can I expect? How many beets to produce a pound of sugar? Can this sugar be used as granulated white/brown sugar?

    Since I am a replace the grocery store fanatic, I would love to know how many pounds of beets make one pound of sugar. This way, I can plan on planting enough beets to really make it worthwhile when making the sugar and make a good amount of it.

    Here in WY there are acres and acres of sugar beets and a sugar beet factory in the next town over. I see trucks and trucks of beets going to the factory for months on end. Granted they are supplying most of WY's sugar. (ie. GV brand) but, I am too curious as to how many beet it would take to make a pound of sugar. They are very large veggies, but I still think it would take a bunch of beets to make any amount of sugar.

    According to a google search, 100 pounds of beets should make about 15-16 pounds of sugar.

    Sugar beets were a very big crop in Utah at one time.
