Ukrainian sugar production season is finished

13 January 2017

According to Ukrtsukor association Ukrainian sugar producers finished their season, total volume of sugar production in the country made 2.008M tons.

In current season sugar yield made record-high 14.7% (vs. 14.1% a year ago), another positive factor the highest during last years sugar beets yield, which made close to 48.1t/ha (43.6t/ha in previous season). All these factors led to rather good sugar production levels, despite sugar beets sown area has been lower than average during last years:

Year Sugar beets Sugar
Sown area, k ha Yield, tons/ha Total yield, k tons Production, k tons Sugar yield, %
2010 501 27.4 13 749 1805 13.1%
2011 532 35.2 18 740 2586 13.8%
2012 458 40.3 18 439 2143 11.6%
2013 280 38.5 10 789 1263 11.7%
2014 331 47.5 15 734 2053 13.0%
2015 237 43.6 10 331 1459 14.1%
2016 284 48.1 13 660 2008 14.7%

In a view of rather good profitability of sugar operations, it is expected that in new season sugar beets sown area in Ukraine will grow by 15-20%, so we can expect growth of sugar production.

As we earlier reported during September-December (since the start of new season) sugar export from Ukraine made close to 345k tons (total expected figure for the whole season 500k tons).
