DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Commodity Credit Corporation Cane Sugar and Beet Sugar Marketing Allotments and Company Allocations, 2006-Crop Final and 2007-Crop Initial; Domestic Sugar Program Commodity Credit Corporation, USDA. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) is issuing this notice to publish the final 2006-crop cane state allotments and company allocations to sugarcane and sugar beet processors for the period from October 1, 2006 through September 30, 2007 (fiscal year (FY) 2007). This notice also publishes the 2007-crop (FY 2008) cane state allotments and company allocations based on an 8.450 million short tons, raw value (STRV) overall allotment quantity (OAQ) of domestic sugar. This applies to all domestic sugar marketed for human consumption in the United States from October 1, 2007, through September 30, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background As part of the domestic sugar program, for sugar marketed for human consumption in the United States, CCC is required to make determinations establishing, adjusting, or suspending sugar marketing allotments. The Secretary is required to establish, by the beginning of each crop year, an appropriate allotment for the marketing by processors of sugar processed from sugar beets and from domestically produced cane sugar at a level the Secretary estimates will result in no forfeitures of sugar to the CCC under the loan program 1 (7 U.S.C. 1359bb(a)(1)). The Secretary is also required to publish the determinations in the Federal Register along with the reasons for the determinations (7 U.S.C. 1359hh). CCC announced the Final FY 2007 and initial FY 2008 allotments and allocations in a September 27, 2007, news release. This notice provides the final allotments and allocations for FY 2007 and the initial allotments and allocations for FY 2008. Final FY 2007 State Allotments and Company Allocations The Secretary is required to reassign the remainder of the allocation to imports if the Secretary determines that processors will be unable to market their allocations after other reassignments and sales from CCC inventory have occurred (7 U.S.C. 1359ee(b)(1)(D)). In a July 31, 2007, news release, CCC announced the determination of a FY 2007 domestic cane sugar supply shortfall of 79,000 STRV and reassigned this deficit to imports. State allotments and company allocations were adjusted downward to reflect the ability of each company and each state to market its allocation and allotment. The final 2006-crop (FY 2007) beet sugar and cane sugar marketing allotments are listed in the following table: FY 2007 OVERALL BEET SUGAR AND CANE SUGAR ALLOTMENTS AND ALLOCATIONS FY 2007 allotments or allocations as of 5/25/07 Changes due to reassignments Beet Sugar .......................................................................................................................

At that time, however, CCC determined that the cane sugar sector would be unable to fill 70,000 STRV of its allotment and withheld this amount for reassignment to imports. Consequently, of the 45.65 percent of the OAQ statutorily allotted to the cane sugar sector (3,857,425 STRV), only 3,787,425 STRV was allotted to cane sugar states for allocation to sugarcane processors. Cane sugar state allotments and processor allocations were announced by CCC in a September 27, 2007 news release. Reasons for the Determinations for the Initial FY 2008 Allotments and Allocations To establish sugar beet processor allocations, CCC applies the sugar beet sector’s allotment to fixed company allocation shares. Likewise, cane sugar VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:32 Jan 07, 2008 Jkt 214001 state and cane sugar processor allocations are calculated by applying fixed shares to the cane sugar allotment. Allocation shares will change only if CCC determines that a processor cannot fulfill its sugar allocation and reassigns the unused allocation to other processors or if a grower successfully transfers allocation commensurate with his production history to another processor. CCC determined that South Louisiana Sugars Cooperative, Inc., a Louisiana sugarcane processor, was closed and accepted grower petitions to transfer allocation elsewhere. Permanent allocation transfers in Louisiana could not be made by the September 30, 2007, announcement deadline for FY 2008 allocations, but will be forthcoming. CCC is required to limit the amount of sugarcane acreage that may be harvested in Louisiana for sugar or seed whenever marketing allotments are in effect and the quantity of sugarcane estimated to be produced in Louisiana, plus a reasonable carryover, exceeds the marketing allotment allocation for Louisiana. This limitation is referred to PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Final FY 2007 allotments or allocations as a ‘‘proportionate share,’’ and is applied to each farm’s sugarcane acreage base to determine the quantity of sugarcane that may be harvested on that farm. Because production is expected to be inadequate to fill Louisiana’s FY 2008 allotment, CCC determined that there will be no proportionate share restrictions for the 2007 crop year. In FY 2004, CCC determined that Puerto Rico’s processors permanently terminated operations because no sugar had been processed for two complete years. Since Puerto Rico is entitled to an allocation by law, its allocation of 6,356 STRV is reassigned to the mainland cane sugar-producing states. Hawaii did not receive any of Puerto Rico’s reassignment because it is not expected to use all of its current cane sugar allotment. A request for an allocation as a new entrant will be required for any mills in Puerto Rico to market cane sugar in the future. The established 2007-crop (FY 2008) sugar beet and cane sugar marketing allotments are listed in the following table: E:\FR\FM\08JAN1.SGM 08JAN1 1316 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 5 / Tuesday, January 8, 2008 / Notices FY 2008 OVERALL BEET SUGAR AND CANE SUGAR ALLOTMENTS AND ALLOCATIONS Initial FY 2008 allotments or allocations Distribution Changes due to reassignments Adjusted initial FY 2008 allotments or allocations Beet Sugar .......................................................................................................................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    As part of the domestic sugar program, for sugar marketed for human 
consumption in the United States, CCC is required to make 
determinations establishing, adjusting, or suspending sugar marketing 
allotments. The Secretary is required to establish, by the beginning of 
each crop year, an appropriate allotment for the marketing by 
processors of sugar processed from sugar beets and from domestically 
produced cane sugar at a level the Secretary estimates will result in 
no forfeitures of sugar to the CCC under the loan program \1\ (7 U.S.C. 
1359bb(a)(1)). The Secretary is also required to publish the 
determinations in the Federal Register along with the reasons for the 
determinations (7 U.S.C. 1359hh).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The sugar loan program provides loans to processors of 
domestically grown sugarcane and sugar beets (authorized by 7 U.S.C. 
7272).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CCC announced the Final FY 2007 and initial FY 2008 allotments and 
allocations in a September 27, 2007, news release. This notice provides 
the final allotments and allocations for FY 2007 and the initial 
allotments and allocations for FY 2008.

Final FY 2007 State Allotments and Company Allocations

    The Secretary is required to reassign the remainder of the 
allocation to imports if the Secretary determines that processors will 
be unable to market their allocations after other reassignments and 
sales from CCC inventory have occurred (7 U.S.C. 1359ee(b)(1)(D)). In a 
July 31, 2007, news release, CCC announced the determination of a FY 
2007 domestic cane sugar supply shortfall of 79,000 STRV and reassigned 
this deficit to imports. State allotments and company allocations were 
adjusted downward to reflect the ability of each company and each state 
to market its allocation and allotment.
    The final 2006-crop (FY 2007) beet sugar and cane sugar marketing 
allotments are listed in the following table:

Initial FY 2008 State Allotments and Company Allocations

    When CCC announced an 8.450 million ton STRV OAQ in an August 10, 
2007, news release, it distributed 54.35 percent of the FY 2008 OAQ 
(4,592,575 STRV) to the beet sugar allotment. At that time, however, 
CCC determined that the cane sugar sector would be unable to fill 
70,000 STRV of its allotment and withheld this amount for reassignment 
to imports. Consequently, of the 45.65 percent of the OAQ statutorily 
allotted to the cane sugar sector (3,857,425 STRV), only 3,787,425 STRV 
was allotted to cane sugar states for allocation to sugarcane 
processors. Cane sugar state allotments and processor allocations were 
announced by CCC in a September 27, 2007 news release.

Reasons for the Determinations for the Initial FY 2008 Allotments and 
Allocations

    To establish sugar beet processor allocations, CCC applies the 
sugar beet sector's allotment to fixed company allocation shares. 
Likewise, cane sugar state and cane sugar processor allocations are 
calculated by applying fixed shares to the cane sugar allotment. 
Allocation shares will change only if CCC determines that a processor 
cannot fulfill its sugar allocation and reassigns the unused allocation 
to other processors or if a grower successfully transfers allocation 
commensurate with his production history to another processor.
    CCC determined that South Louisiana Sugars Cooperative, Inc., a 
Louisiana sugarcane processor, was closed and accepted grower petitions 
to transfer allocation elsewhere. Permanent allocation transfers in 
Louisiana could not be made by the September 30, 2007, announcement 
deadline for FY 2008 allocations, but will be forthcoming.
    CCC is required to limit the amount of sugarcane acreage that may 
be harvested in Louisiana for sugar or seed whenever marketing 
allotments are in effect and the quantity of sugarcane estimated to be 
produced in Louisiana, plus a reasonable carryover, exceeds the 
marketing allotment allocation for Louisiana. This limitation is 
referred to as a ``proportionate share,'' and is applied to each farm's 
sugarcane acreage base to determine the quantity of sugarcane that may 
be harvested on that farm. Because production is expected to be 
inadequate to fill Louisiana's FY 2008 allotment, CCC determined that 
there will be no proportionate share restrictions for the 2007 crop 
year.
    In FY 2004, CCC determined that Puerto Rico's processors 
permanently terminated operations because no sugar had been processed 
for two complete years. Since Puerto Rico is entitled to an allocation 
by law, its allocation of 6,356 STRV is reassigned to the mainland cane 
sugar-producing states. Hawaii did not receive any of Puerto Rico's 
reassignment because it is not expected to use all of its current cane 
sugar allotment. A request for an allocation as a new entrant will be 
required for any mills in Puerto Rico to market cane sugar in the 
future.
    The established 2007-crop (FY 2008) sugar beet and cane sugar 
marketing allotments are listed in the following table:
