Top­ping cane crush records

Isis Town and Country - - News -

trend in the cur­rent es­ti­mate and the mill ap­pears to be still on tar­get to process 1.25 mil­lion tonnes of cane for the sea­son.

Crush­ing oper­a­tions are ex­pected to be com­pleted by late this month or very early next month.

The weekly CCS rose slightly to be 15.15 units and the year to date fig­ure is now 13.98 units.

The Va­ri­ety Q238 SRP achieved the high­est weekly CCS of 17.36 units for a grower in the Redridge area.

The va­ri­ety Q208 con­tin­ued to dom­i­nate the cane sup­ply this week with 17,655.64 tonnes supplied.

A very small amount of the new va­ri­ety Q252 was also pro­cessed this week. WELCOME rain­fall was recorded across some parts of the cane sup­ply area dur­ing week 16.

While the rain­fall was patchy, some lo­ca­tions recorded up to 40mm for the week.

Ar­eas around Wallav­ille and Farns­field en­joyed the heav­ier falls from the thun­der­storms moved through the re­gion on Mon­day and Tues­day, how­ever some lo­ca­tions still have dust in their rain gauges.

Crush­ing oper­a­tions were not im­pacted by the weather with the Isis Mill pro­cess­ing 65,090 tonnes of cane for the 168 hours.

The Isis Mill has now crushed 992,774 tonnes of cane for the 2015 sea­son to date.

There was a slight up­ward

The 72.03 tonnes recorded a very healthy 16.08 units of CCS.

There has been a very pos­i­tive move­ment in the sugar price re­cently with the prompt con­tract trad­ing above 13.5c/lb.

This is a pos­i­tive sig­nal and should give grow­ers added con­fi­dence as they plant, fer­tilise and ir­ri­gate the 2016 crop.

Share­hold­ers will have re­ceived their in­vi­ta­tions to the an­nual gen­eral meet­ing of the com­pany in the mail this week.

Since the in­vi­ta­tions went out a change of venue has oc­curred and at­ten­dees are ad­vised that the meet­ing will now be held on site at the Isis Mill.
