Excerpt from The Sugar-Beet in America
Sugar, which was once a luxury, has become a necessity in modern dietaries. The civilized nations have become so accustomed to its use as an important food that great inconvenience is experienced if it cannot be had or if the supply is reduced. This has made sugar-producing plants almost as staple as those from which bread is derived. As a result, sugar-beets, in the past century, have won an im portant place among the profitable mom of the temperate zone. In most of the European countries they have been raised extensively, whereas in America their growth has been confined to a comparatively few localities. In re cent years, however, the area has been greatly extended, and increased interest has been taken in establishing a domestic beet-sugar industry.
