Sugar cane crushing in Queensland, Australia is said to be back on track after the rains delayed this season harvest. The statement was made by Jim Crane from the Australian Sugar Milling Council (ASMC).
Sugar mills have also restarted operations in Mackay, Proserpine and the Burdekin after three weeks delay.
Almost 4.0 million tonnes of cane were crushed up to July 24, barely half the 7.5 million tonnes of cane crushed a year earlier. ASMC has forecast this year’s crush to rise 11% from last year to 31.2 million tonnes.
