Rain affects sugar tests

CONTINUOUS afternoon showers have hampered the Fiji Sugar Corporation's attempts to develop a forecast price for next season's crop.

FSC executive chairman Abdul Khan said the process required samples from cane crops in the Western Division.

"There are a certain number of farms that we obtain our samples from and this has been the case for a number of years," he explained.

"For consistency, we have to take samples from these same farms to help us determine forecast price for next season to get an accurate reading in relation to previous forecast announcements."

Last season farmers were paid $80.74 per tonne, a significant increase over the $65.67 paid previously.
