SUGAR LETTER OF
WILLETT ft GRAY
Willott (fe Gray published their
preliminary estininte of the 1916
1916 world's sugar crop, under date
of October 19, at 17,435,000 tons.
The 1916 crop was 16,521,317 and
the 1915 crop 18,460,105 tons.
"Hie estimated increase in the
world's production they place at
913,683 tons. Practically all this
increase will he cano sugar, their
estimate leing that 1917 cane crops
will exceed those of 1916 by 910,
Although the Cuban factories re
port a total increase in capacity to
3,629,133 tons, Willott A Gray
maintain that the 1917 crop will
not exceed 3,400,000 tons.
The Java crop they state, will be
361,000 tons greater next year.
Forto Rico, Hawaii, San Domingo,
Brazil, Formosa and Japan are elat
ed for larger crops, while India's
outturn will be 236,000 tons less.
"The larger cane crops are, in prac
tically all cases, the result of the in
fluence of the prevailing high world
prices for sugar duo to the deficien
cy of the 2,000,000 tons exported
by Germany and Austria in normal
times", they state.
Next Louisiana Crop.
"We estimate the Ixmisiana crop
at 250,000 tons. While the outward
appearance of the crop, together
with the increased plantings and
early maturity, would indicate a
a crop higher than the above figure,
there are several circumstances that
should have have a deterrent effect
upon the outturn.
Those drawbacks are concisely
summed up by a prominent planter
as follows: 1st. The cane borers,
whoso ravages are a great loss to
crops, have been more prevalent
this year. 2nd. The stubblo crop
is a poor one, due to the fact that
last year's plant cane was extremely
Ioor. 3. There will be more cane
Tttsed for planting, due to high price
of sugar than has been the case of
several years, and furthermore, the
weather during the past few weeks
has not lrn entirely favorable, as
it has lioon too dry.
Beet Foreign and Domestic.
'The American beet crop figures
for the total stand at 816,000 Ions,
against our figures based on sow
ings as published by us on July 6,
1916, of 8.50,000 tons. Last year's
crop outturned 779,756 tons.
"Our preliminary estimate of the
European boot crop is ImukkI on the
latest information regarding its
progress and posible yield. The final
figure of 5,150,000 tons is 270,000
tons loss than the figure published
by us on July 27, which was then
based upon estimated sowings and
average yield of previous years.
"Generally speaking, the weath
er throughout Europe has boon fav
orable for the growth and develop
ment of the Ix'ets, the drawbacks
to the production of a large amount
of sugar ln ing the lack of skilled
labor for sowing, cultivation, har
vesting and factory work, together
with scarcity and high prices of fac
tory and field supplies. Our esti
mate of last year's European beet
crop total is 5,209,233 tons.
