THE performance of sugar mills has shown significant improvement with more than 700,000 tonnes of cane crushed so far, says Sugar Cane Growers Council CEO Sundresh Chetty.
He said the council was happy with the sugar production so far.
"There has been good sugar production and the weather has been favourable as well," he said.
"We would like to encourage farmers to take advantage of this good weather and deliver fresh green cane to the mills."
He also said while crushing had been good, concerns were still being raised on the issue of cane burning.
"It is easier for fire to spread to cane farms because of dry conditions and this poses a threat to infrastructure."
