Lost time min­i­mal

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE first week of the 2015 crush­ing sea­son was in­ter­rupted by wet weather last Wed­nes­day when rain fell across the re­gion.

Ac­cord­ing to Isis Cen­tral Sugar Mill CEO John Gor­ringe, the net­work of rain gauges in­di­cated that falls be­tween 15mm and 40mm was recorded.

“Around 36 hours of pro­cess­ing time was lost due to the weather. The rain cou­pled with the mild win­ter con­di­tions ex­pe­ri­enced to date should boost the crop prospects for the 2015 sea­son,” he said.

The Fac­tory at Isis Mill pro­cessed 23,477.73 tonnes through the rollers at a weekly av­er­age CCS of 11.92 units.

Mr Gor­ringe said lost time, apart from the in­ter­rup­tion caused by the rain, was min­i­mal.

Av­er­age bin weight for the week was recorded as 6.06 tonnes.

“The early sea­son va­ri­ety KQ228 made up the bulk of the sup­ply with more than 10,000 tonnes supplied dur­ing the short­ened week,” Mr Gor­ringe said.

“This va­ri­ety also recorded the high­est in­di­vid­ual re­sults for the week with a record­ing of 15.12 units of CCS from an Al­loway sup­plier.”
