Rain holds up the mill

Isis Town and Country - - News -

HAR­VEST­ING oper­a­tions have con­tin­ued for the en­tire week, with only short in­ter­rup­tions due to bad weather.

Isis Cen­tral Sugar Mill CEO John Gor­ringe said these showers had kept ground con­di­tions moist and on oc­ca­sions har­vest­ing had ground to a halt.

“The cane sup­ply is­sues have im­pacted the fac­tory, with a num­ber of pro­duc­tion hours lost due to the wet weather,” he said.

“The fac­tory pro­cessed 58,072.97 tonnes of sugar cane through the rollers at Isis Mill for the week.

“Isis Mill has now pro­cessed 81,550.70 tonnes for the 2015 sea­son.”

Mr Gor­ringe said with school hol­i­days un­der way, chil­dren should be re­minded cane rail­way cor­ri­dors were fully utilised at this time of year and peo­ple should stay well clear of cane trains.
