International: According to reports, Sugar prices on Tuesday retreated with NY sugar prices at a new 1-1/2 year low. Sugar prices are under pressure from ample supplies and weakness in crude oil prices. Sugar prices were undercut by Tuesday’s report from Unica that Brazil’s 2019/20 Center-South sugar production during Oct-March rose +0.83% y/y to 26.729 MMT. Also, Unica reported Tuesday that Brazil Center-South Mar ethanol domestic sales dropped -17.7% y/y to 1.37 billion liters, a sign of weak ethanol demand that may prompt Brazil’s sugar mills to divert more cane crushing toward sugar production
