Dominican Republic: Sugar Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   DR2022-0004

With expected normal rainfall patterns over the main sugarcane production zones, Post forecasts sugar production in the Dominican Republic to be 630,000 metric tons (MT) in Marketing Year (MY) 2022/2023 (October/September), a 2 percent increase over the previous period last year. In MY 2021/22, Post estimates sugar production at 620,000 MT with an industrial average yield of approximately 11 percent. Additionally, in MY 2021/22, Post projects exports to remain unchanged at 190,000 MT. Dominican exports are expected to fill the U.S. annual sugar tariff-rate quota (TRQ) due to price premiums in the U.S. market and small, informal exports to Haiti.
