Inspired by the fair's theme, Yolo County Farm Bureau Education Corporation looked back 80 years into Yolo County's agriculture history to when sugar beets were its top commodity. The same year, in 1936, two sugar beet processing plants opened: American Crystal Sugar in Clarksburg and Spreckels Sugar Company in Woodland. The booth highlighted processing practices from the 1930s and 1940s and practices used currently. It also gave an overview of the two processing plants, and had a video on loop of the Clarksburg plant processing sugar beets in the 1930s!
