Sugar Industry Update

The Mackay region cane growers have begun the 2015 crushing season. There are a number of factors affecting this season’s crush with significantly lower prices and sugar levels being considerably low at this point in time. There have even been cases where cane is being condemned due to the severe dry weather and yellow canopy syndrome.

We are aware that the impact of these factors can severely affect your cashflow and the full effect may not become apparent until the crushing season has finished. Proactive encourage growers to keep in regular contact over the crushing season so we can help identify if you need further planning or assistance with cash flow requirements. We would like to take this opportunity to wish all contractors and growers a safe and incident free crushing season.
