Costa Rica’s sugar cane production is expected to decline about 1 percent in MY 2020/2021 to 4,057,000 MT. Sugar production is expected to decline 7.6 percent to 407,000 MT in MY 2020/2021 as compared to MY 2019/2020. Several factors affected production including lower sugar concentration and the negative effects of Hurricanes Eta and Iota in late 2020. Farm management issues and the slow process of renovation of the plantations also negatively impacted yields.
