Unless otherwise designated, split years (e.g. 1999/2000) refer to Marketing Years. All measures not otherwise noted are in metric tons and expressed in raw value. One kilogram (kg) = 2.2046 lbs., one metric ton (mt) = 2,204.62 lbs. or 1.10231 short tons, and one hectare = 2.471 acres. One ton of refined cane sugar = 1.07 tons of sugar, raw value. One ton of refined beet sugar = 1.087 tons of sugar, raw value (except for the United States which is 1.07).
Beginning with the June, 2000, Tropical Products: World Markets and Trade Circular and the November, 2000, Sugar: World Markets and Trade Circular, commodity and country analysis and statistical tables for cocoa and honey will be discontinued. This decision was necessitated due to declining Foreign Agricultural Service budget resources and the need to more strategically target remaining resources in support of the agency's primary mission to facilitate the expansion of export opportunities for U.S.-produced agricultural commodities. The Horticultural and Tropical Products Division (HTP) expects to continue to receive voluntary reporting on cocoa production and trade from an abbreviated number of countries and these will continue to be posted on the FAS and HTP Home Pages upon receipt.
