Effects of ethanol production from sugar-cane with a free sugar market

Effects of ethanol production from sugar-cane with a free sugar market

Development Southern Africa 4(2): 242-249

A free market for sugar in South Africa is simulated. Results indicate that area under sugar cane would decrease by 49% and labour employment by 26% relative to the actual situation. Sugar cane would only be produced in areas with a comparative advantage. No sugar would be exported. Ethanol production from sugar cane would only occur with government price supports which would lead to an increase in the price of edible sugar.
