POWELL, Wyo. (AP) -- Some sugar beet farmers in the Powell area are replanting their crops following last week's frost.

Beet grower Ric Rodriguez of Heart Mountain replanted some of his fields over the weekend after some of his crop froze early last week.

Rodriguez is a member of the Western Sugar Cooperative board of directors. He says the co-op's field men have been surveying damage in local fields.

Glen Reed raises sugar beets near Cody and is president of the Big Horn Basin Beet Growers Association.

Reed says he was checking his fields for damage on Monday. He says cold, cloudy days are hard on seedlings.
