MOORHEAD - American Crystal Sugar Co. halted its sugar beet harvest Tuesday because temperatures dipped below 20 degrees and the crowns, or tops, of the beets were getting frosted.

Company spokesman Jeff Schweitzer said all five factory districts dug no beets Tuesday. "We will take a look at it again at noon (today)," he said. About 65 percent of the crop was harvested as of Tuesday morning, he said.
