  Apart from large cane growers like the Fanjuls and their rival, U.S. Sugar Corp., the sugar lobby is dominated by consortia of sugar-beet farmers in the upper Midwest. Individually, these farmers are small, but they are highly organized and can bring enormous pressure to bear on the politicians who represent them. conduct the negotiations with the German sugar companies on sugar beet prices, as well as on contract and delivery conditions.

While the rural poor have diverse livelihood structures, they depend critically on income generated by the sale of farm. Improvement of the competitiveness of the sugar beet crop in the Netherlands 10 1 Prologue This dissertation focuses on the competitiveness of the sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) crop in the Netherlands.

Basically the income of the farmer is the product of yield and product price (revenues) minus total costs, as a sum for all crops. In order to insure that the beets retain their sugar content, beets are piled below 55 degrees in order to keep the piles cool, and prevent sugar loss in the beets.

Piles can be as large as 20 feet tall by feet wide by several hundred feet long. Beets are later trucked from the piles to the factories for processing. In technical terms, and although derived from a different source, beet sugar may be considered to be both chemically and functionally identical to cane sugar.

The FAO defines beet sugar as a non-refined, crystallized material derived from the juices extracted from the root of the sugar beet and consisting either wholly or essentially of sucrose. cross-checking, normal trade.

Currently, about countries produce sugar from either cane or beet, and eight countries produce sugar from both cane and ane, on average, accounts for nearly 80% of global sugar production. Last October/September season the top ten producing countries (India, Brazil, Thailand, China, the US, Mexico, Russia, Pakistan, France, Australia) accounted for.

One of Ireland's two sugar beet factories could close if import tariffs are dramatically reduced in World Trade Organisation negotiations, the Minister for Agriculture, Mr Walsh, was told yesterday. The World Trade Organization (WTO) () is located in Geneva, Switzerland, and was established on January 1, as a successor to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), which was formed after the Second World was created by the Uruguay Round negotiations () and as of August,had member countries.

As more sugar is allowed to enter an already-saturated domestic market, growers could face lower prices. The industry believes that sugar should not be included in bilateral trade agreements, but should rather be addressed on a multilateral basis, where worldwide subsidies can be addressed and appropriately eliminated.

World production is dominated by Brazil followed by India, the European Union and Thailand (see table below). Cane sugar production accounts for the majority of world production (about 80%) and is concentrated in Asia and South/Central America.

World beet sugar production continues to be dominated by the EU followed by Russia and the United States. Exporting cane sugar is particularly difficult for many African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries as markets in the EU and US are protected in favour of their own sugar beet growers and cane plantations.
