Incessant rainfall impacts cane crushing in Fiji


Fiji: Sugarcane crushing activities in Fiji’s three sugar mills have been affected due to wet weather. Graham Clark, FSC Chief Executive, stated that the mills are not able to crush fully to their capacity due to incessant rainfall in the region.

According to the local media report, he said, “Due to wet weather, we are not able to procure the cane from the fields and are facing difficulties in crushing with full capacity. We are expecting the weather to clear so we can continue to buildup cane and crush.”

“Heavy rainfall has created problems for us in procuring and continuing harvesting activity. Everything was favourable this year but the rainfall created a problem now.” said a farmer from the Northern Division.
