The Dominican Republic’s 2017/2018 sugar cane crush reached 5.8 mln tonnes, a significant increase over the 5.5 mln in 2016/17. Agra-Net reports the source of the numbers is the country’s National Sugar Institute (Inazucar). Agra-Net says this would be the country’s highest sugar harvest level since the mid 1990s. Of the total, 3.5 mln tonnes were crashed by the Central Romana in La Romana.
