Eswatini: Sugar Annual
Link to report:
Post forecasts that sugar cane production in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) will increase by 2 percent, to 5.3 million metric tons (MT) in the 2022/23 MY, based on good rainfall, increased available irrigation water, normal weather conditions, expanded planted area and consistent cane yields. Post forecasts that sugar production in the 2022/23 MY will increase by 2 percent, to 630,000 MT, up from 615,000 MT in the 2021/22 MY, based on an increase in sugar cane delivered to mills, better quality (sucrose content) of sugar cane, and improved sugar mill efficiencies (sugar recovery rate). Post expects that Eswatini will fully utilize its allocated U.S. sugar tariff rate quota in the 2022/23 MY and 2021/22 MY.
