The outlook for sugar beet in France has been influenced by contrasting factors, with high green biomass development, but also high pressure from pests and diseases and below-average radiation in the main producing regions (which tends to negatively affect sugar content). In Germany, after a very cold start to the season with below-average biomass accumulation, sugar beet has recovered and the yield is forecast to be above last year’s level. So far, reported sugar content is still lower than usual, as there were not many days with high sunshine duration. Also in Poland, after a very cold start to the season, sugar beet has regained biomass accumulation, and overall yields are now expected to be above last year’s level. However, yield expectations vary across regions, and reported sugar content is still below average. 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.
