BSI Reports on Status of Sugar Crop

The Belize Sugar Industry has issued its numbers on milled sugar cane and sugar produced for the fourth week of the 2018/2019 sugar crop.  According to the weekly bulletin, in its fourth week, the factory performance was productive with a little over 47 thousand tons of sugar cane milled and a little over five thousand tons of sugar produced. That brings the total amount of cane milled since the start of the crop to just over 171, 900 tons and sugar produced to just over 17,900 tons. Compared to the same week in the last crop, however, the figures are down. Over twenty thousand tons more sugar cane was milled for the same time period last year and over two thousand tons more sugar was produced. BSI also reports that the sugar cane quality is very good at the fourth week of crop.
