ProtectPlus: More beets, more protection, more yield

With the new scalping system more beet is harvested and the beets are better protected against losses of energy and sugar. This all creates a higher yield.

Big sugar beet needs bigger scalping, smaller sugar beet needs smaller scalping. With the introduction of the new ProtectPlus scalping system, the defoliator can be set higher, this gives more space between the scalper and the controlling crest. This means that the highest beets don’t get hit by the defoliator and scalpers leave a perfectly scalped beet. With a perfect scalped beet, it is better protected against losses of sugar because the energy of the beet doesn’t go to the damaged part during storage.

As much beet as possible with perfectly scalped beets

  • Each beet gets its own approach by the individual to a parallelogram mounted scalper knife; large beets a larger wig, small beets a smaller wig
  • Adjustable feelers
  • Durable and sharp hardened, self-sharpening knifes
  • Most sugar in the beet, most nutrients on the land
