Turkiye: Sugar Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   TU2024-0015
In MY 2024/25, the sugar beet area harvested is expected to slightly expand year-to-year as farmers switch to growing more beets in hopes of capturing higher returns compared to sunflowers and corn. In parallel with this expansion in area, sugar production is forecast to grow to nearly 3.2 million metric tons (MMT). While the government has not yet announced the beet sugar production quota for MY 2024/25, the amount is expected to be close to last year’s amount of about 3.0 MMT. Any amount produced in excess of the quota will either be exported or used in a food or beverage product for export.
