Rain continued from last week depressing the crushing rate mid week and completely halting Mill operations over the weekend.

A total of 74 hours of rain stops were recorded while inside stops were 11 hours.

During the week, issues were encountered with the Mill air compressors, diffuser drives, dewatering mills and chokes on the bagasse conveyors.

As a result of the stop start nature of operations, cane throughput was 19,652 tonnes and the total sugar make for the week was 1,789 tonnes.

Both were lower than target for the week, however, the tonnes cane to sugar ratio of 11.0 units was in line with expectation, which indicated efforts were in place to maximize sugar recovery despite the fact that percent burnt cane received was 90.7%.

The high extraneous matter in mechanically harvested cane continues to be highlighted as an issue affecting sugar processing.

Cut to crush delays were minimized which resulted in a slight improvement in cane quality from last week
