Week 3 production figures for Wilmar Sugar Plane Creek Mill
PLANE Creek Mill crushed just under 61,000 tonnes of cane for week three.
This has brought the season total to more than 137,000 tonnes.
Wilmar Sugar Plane Creek Region cane supply manager, Jim Kirchner said the factory performed well over the week, with consistent crush rates and reasonable reliability.
"There was a lengthy cane supply shortfall stoppage early in the week following weekend rain," Mr Kirchner said.
"A further weather-related cane supply shortfall was experienced later in the week due to widespread showers on Saturday."
He said the average weekly CCS increased by 0.55 of a unit, taking the season-to-date CCS figure to 12.36 units.
"The highest CCS was 14.9 from a rake of KQ228 2nd ratoon from the Ilbilbie productivity district," he said.
