Mexico set for rise in sugar output

This article was originally published in The Public Ledger

MEXICO expects sugar production for the 2012/13 harvesting season to reach 5.67m tonnes, up 12.5% from the 5.04m tonnes reached in 2011/12, the country’s national sugar committee Conadesuca said on Monday. An official with Conadesuca said the expected jump in output was due in part to an additional 16,000 hectares dedicated to sugar production compared with the previous cycle. Another factor was better anticipated weather conditions. If the estimate proves accurate, this would be the largest sugar yield since the peak of 5.8m tonnes achieved in 2004/05.
