Sugar Program: The Basics (CRS report)

The sugar program provides a price guarantee to the processors of sugarcane and sugar beets, and in turn, to the producers of both crops. The USDA further is directed to administer the program at no budgetary cost to the federal government by limiting the amount of sugar supplied for food use in the US market. To achieve both objectives, USDA uses four tools—authorized by the 2008 farm bill and longstanding trade law—to keep domestic market prices above guaranteed levels. Those programs are discussed in the report.
