Brazil’s Sugar Cane Harvest Grows 5.7% to 440 Million Tons

Brazil should harvest 440 million tons in the next sugar cane crop. The volume will represent a 5.7% increase in relation to the previous harvest, which was of 416.2 million tons. The information was from the communications advisory at the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply.

Of the total, 219,2 million tons will be destined to the production of 27.2 million tons of sugar. Another 177.9 million will go to the production of 17 billion liters of alcohol, and the remaining 42.9 million tons will be used for cachaça (spirit typical of Brazil), rapadura (solid brown sugar sold in the shape of a brick), seeds and animal food.

The information is from the National Food Supply Company (Conab). The Conab also estimates the increase in exports in the sector.

Sugar shipments should remain at 17.8 million tons (US$ 2.9 billion), against 15.8 million tons (US$ 2.6 billion) in 2004. External sales of alcohol, in turn, are estimated in 2.5 billion liters (US$ 500 million), against 2.4 billion liters (US$ 500 million) in the previous period.
