This example was created on the base of thematic map "Germany: Sugarbeets. Percent of total area by state" from the website of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. [usda.gov/oce/weather/pubs/Other/MWCACP/Graphs/eur/grmsugb.gif]
"Sugar beet, cultivated Beta vulgaris, is a plant whose root contains a high concentration of sucrose. It is grown commercially for sugar production.
In 2011, France, the United States, Germany, Russia, and Ukraine were the world's five largest sugar beet producers by mass, whilst by value Turkey takes the place of Ukraine. However, in 2010–2011, North America, Western Europe, and Eastern Europe did not produce enough sugar from sugar beets to meet overall demand for sugar, and were all net importers of sugar. ... In 2009, sugar beets accounted for 20% of the world's sugar production." [Sugar beet. Wikipedia]
