Brazil's 2014-2015 Sugar, Ethanol Production Starts Strong

NEW YORK (DTN) -- Brazil's Union of Sugarcane Industry Association, or UNICA, released a report saying 12.6 million tons of sugarcane was processed by millers in the country's south-central region during the first half of April.

That's up 62.5% from the same period a year ago, with the increase attributed to higher mill run rates. Of the country's 155 mills, 153 were running at 90% of operable capacity last month.

UNICA said 66.7% of the sugarcane was processed into ethanol rather than raw sugar, with ethanol production coming in at 667 million liters.
