As 2021 draws to a close, Michael Sly, Chair of NFU Sugar, considers what lies in store for 2022. NFU Sugar has a number of continuing priorities in 2022. First and foremost is the continued drive to secure contract prices for growers that account for the increased risks and costs of growing sugar beet, and offer returns that compare favourably with other land use options. Risks and rewards We will push forward the uptake of the innovative futures contract, which allows growers greater access to the risks and rewards in the sugar market; we see this model becoming more common across the EU and are proud to have developed it first for UK beet growers. We will continue to help growers manage the significant disease pressures they face – through access to necessary plant protection products, biological methods and (longer term) gene edited technologies.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.
