Tuesday, November 9, 2021
Benefiting from the summer weather, the current sugar beet harvest in France is estimated at 34.1 Mt, up 30.0% compared to 2020, but 8.0% lower than the 2016-2020 average (37 Mt). Yields are significantly higher than 2020 (+ 36.1%) and above the average for the 2016-2020 harvests. The areas, estimated at 402,000 ha, fell for the third consecutive year and are down 10.4% compared to the five-year average, losing 46.9 thousand hectares. Note that Agreste area estimates include sugar beet used to make "jus vert" and hence bioethanol.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.
