Post forecasts that sugar cane production in Zimbabwe will increase by 4 percent to 3.7 million Metric Tons (MT) in the 2020/21 Marketing Year (MY), based on normal weather conditions, availability of sufficient irrigation water, increase in area planted, improved sugar cane yields, and industry’s success in addressing the pest, Yellow Sugarcane Aphids (YSA). Post forecasts that sugar production will increase by 4 percent to 460,000 MT in the 2020/21 MY, due to an increase in the quantity of sugar cane delivered to the mills, improved sugar cane quality (sucrose content), and improved sugar mill efficiencies (sugar recovery rate). Post forecasts that sugar exports will decrease marginally by 1 percent to 104,000 MT in the 2020/21 MY, based on the projected impact of Covid-19 (Corona virus) on demand and global supply chains especially during the first months of the season. Post forecasts that Zimbabwe will fully utilize the United States Tariff Rate Quota allocation of 12,636 MT.
