This report provides an outlook on domestic and global sugar production, use, and stocks. Annual domestic production of sugar is estimated for the current year, forecasted for the next fiscal year and compared with annual sugar use and annual importation. International production and use of sugar (especially that of Mexico's) is also estimated for the current year and forecasted for the next year. International imports and exports are estimated on a country by country basis, with analysis for notable policy changes. Also included are international and global ending stocks of sugar and how they measure against production and use.

This monthly report provides the current USDA forecasts of U.S. and world supply-use balances of major grains, soybeans and products, and cotton; and U.S. supply and use of sugar and livestock products. Historical WASDE Crop Estimates (Lotus Notes Formats through 1995).
NOTE TO USERS
Previously, corrections to the WASDE report were reposted to the OCE and Cornell’s MANN Library websites under the same file name. However, starting in January 2020, if the WASDE report is reposted to correct an error in the tables or text, the file name (for all four file formats) will be changed to reflect that there is a new version, and an errata statement will be included in the file and posted on the OCE website to describe the change. For example, the name of the December 2019 WASDE is “wasde1219.xxx” If a revision were necessary, the corrected file would be posted as “wasde1219v2.xxx” If another revision was necessary, the next file would be posted as “wasde1219v3.xxx,”etc.
