Brazil’s Center South to increase sugar cane output by 4%

Following the post of the 16th February concerning output of sugar cane from Brazil’s Center South rising to 575 million tonnes, the additional cane output is expected to result in an increase in sugar production by approximately 2 million tonnes to 35.5 million tonnes during the 2011/12 season and up from 33.5 million tonnes during the 2010/11 season. The cane diverted to sugar production as opposed to ethanol is likely to be 47% rising from 45%. The center south produces 90% of Brazil’s sugar and crushing for the 2011/12 season will commence in March.
