European market in sugar quotas

, : European market in sugar quotas. Memoires et Theses Economie et Socologie Rurales/Grignon, Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique ( 3): 93 pp.

Most European sugar is produced from sugarbeet: 14 Mt is produced annually, of which 4.8 Mt is exported, while a further 1.7 Mt is imported. Quotas on sugarbeet production were introduced in 1968, and as the EC enlarged, the system was applied to new southern European members. Different quantities are produced by the different regions, with northern climates better suited to beet growing.
