Expected yield in the Netherlands is good
Cosun Beet Company

As of today, all Cosun Beet Company factories are again active in the processing of sugar beets. The factories in Dinteloord and Hoogkerk (Groningen) received the first beets this morning. In our German factory in Anklam, processing started on September 6. This moment means the start of much more than just sugar production. The expected yield is better than previous estimates. This is 84 tons of beets per hectare with a sugar yield of 14 tons per hectare, which is slightly higher than the five-year average, but lower than last year. After a cold spring, a somewhat wet summer, but sufficient hours of sunshine in September, the beet fields are currently in good shape. In addition, there was limited damage this year due to yellowing disease and to date also due to leaf fungi. The expectation for the total amount of sugar to be produced is slightly larger than in 2022. Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
As I browse the web researching various topics concerning the EU and UK sugar markets, I've been bookmarking interesting weblinks. Some of these are news clippings, some are links to official documents, and some are interesting data sources.
