Guatemala: Sugar Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   GT2021-0011

In marketing year 2021/2022, Guatemala is forecast to produce 2.70 million metric tons of sugar from sugarcane from a harvested area of 251,000 hectares, as sugar yields increase to 10.76 metric tons per hectare through the expansion from 52 to 60 percent of the area planted and to be harvested with improved sugar cane varieties. The estimate for marketing year 2020/2021 is revised down 6 percent to 2.62 million metric tons because of a marked La Niña Year, slight reduction in area, and lack of renovation of some 5-year-old plantations resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the economy. Domestic consumption for marketing year 2021/2022 is forecast at 921,000 MT and revised up 8 percent for marketing year 2020/2021.
