Tully Sugar recently quietly passed past the half way mark of this 2020 crushing season.
In the last 14 weeks, over 1.3 Million Tonnes of cane has been crushed of an estimate of 2.4 Million Tonnes.
The CCS value (Commercial cane sugar) so far for the season has averaged 12.52, with the last 2 weeks showing a positive weekly increase.
For the growing sector, recent rain has been a mixed blessing as planting is well under way across the region with good soil moisture conditions promoting good growth, although the accumulated rainfall has currently stopped harvesting activities for the short term.
With school holidays taking place over the next 2 weeks, Chief Operating Officer, John Edwards expressed
that he wished to remind parents, guardians and students to be mindful of our Cane Trains operating throughout the district.
Slow down at rail crossings, never play in rail corridors and to stay safe and enjoy your holidays.
