Slow start

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

A TO­TAL of 75,529 tonnes of sugar cane was crushed dur­ing the sec­ond week of the Proser­pine Mill’s 2013 crush­ing sea­son. Fac­tory is­sues caused in­ter­rup­tions to crush­ing at the start of the week, but the lat­ter part of the week saw through­put above bud­get. Cane sup­ply man­ager Ron Worth said slower har­vest­ing con­di­tions and damp fields meant some groups were un­able to fill their quo­tas. The lower than ex­pected bin weights are still chal­leng­ing smooth crush­ing op­er­a­tions.
