THE FSC will continue to process all sugar cane delivered to the Labasa mill after the closing date of crushing tomorrow.
Confirming this, FSC executive chairman Abdul Khan said they would extend the closing date of crushing if there was a need.
"Although the official closing date is October 27, we will continue to process out all the cane delivered to the mill and if we have to extend the date, we will do so," Mr Khan said.
"Farmers should not think of standover cane.
"All efforts should be directed to the harvesting of all the cane and have it delivered to the mill for crushing.
"For Labasa mill, we expect to process about 540,000 tonnes of sugar cane and produce about 60,000 tonnes of sugar."
Early this week, some canefarmers on Vanua Levu requested FSC for more time to harvest their crop to avoid the issue of standover cane.
The farmers, through the National Farmers Union, asked FSC for compensation if they had standover cane in their respective farms.
Mr Khan said it was only proper for farmers to harvest all their cane and deliver it to the mill.
It was earlier reported that the mill was expected to process about $55million worth of raw sugar from an expected 55,000 tonnes of cane.
