USDA is reassigning beet sugar marketing allocations and adjusting tariff-rate quotas to meet a sugar stocks-to-use ratio of at least 13.5 percent for the 2020 fiscal year. With this decision, American Crystal Sugar Company is seeing its allocation go from over 2 million short tons, raw value to 1.4 million. Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative went from an initial allocation of 391,000 short tons to 316,000. Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Co-op dropped 15,000 short tons to approximately 745,000 short tons, raw value. Michigan Sugar and Amalgamated Sugar are the only two processors to see an increase in their allocations.
