Update: 2:03PM CRUSHING dates have been announced by the Fiji Sugar Corporation.

The 2014 season will begin on June 17 at the Penang mill in Rakiraki, and Labasa will follow on June 18, Rarawai in Ba on June 19, and sugar production will start on July 1 at the countrys largest mill in Lautoka.

Sugar Cane Growers Council CEO Sundresh Chetty said farmers should immediately begin holding memorandum of gang agreement meetings and start preparations for harvesting.

The feedback we have received from growers during consultations held earlier this year, we anticipate a good harvest and crush season, he said.

The FSC is hoping to crush more than two million tonnes of cane this year.
