Low sugar prices are cutting into payments to farmers at American Crystal Sugar Co.
     The Moorhead-based cooperative is telling its growers to expect a "massive reduction" in payments for this year's beet crop.
     In a company blog, American Crystal CEO David Berg says growers will be paid just $38 per ton. Last year, Crystal's farmers were paid more than $68 per ton.

     The company says the reduced payments are mainly due to lower sugar prices but also reflect much lower sugar content in this year's crop.
