    Brazil increasing ethanol capacity because of depressed global sugar prices

    A shift to ethanol in the 2018-19 season slashed Brazil’s sugar output by 9 million tons to a 12-year low

A shift to ethanol in the 2018-19 season slashed Brazil’s sugar output by 9 million tons to a 12-year low and more switching to the biofuel next season could help to wipe out a global surplus weighing on sugar prices.
