The June World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) reduced projected U.S. sugar supplies by 430,000 short tons, raw value (STRV) to 13.606 million STRV for 2017/18. Reduced supplies are due to a 527,000-STRV reduction in projected imports—all of which is due to fewer imports from Mexico. The reduction of imports is partially offset by a 59,000-STRV increase in beginning stocks and a 38,000-STRV increase in domestic production; both are related to a raised production outlook for the 2017/18 sugarbeet crop and a higher expected proportion produced before the October 1 beginning of the fiscal year.
