WORLD SUGAR PROSPECTS 
 
    Favorable weather for developing cane in Sao Paulo Brazil. 
    A drier trend in key growing areas of southwest China will improve 
conditions for the harvest effort for sugarcane. 
    Mostly favorable conditions for developing cane in northern India. Late 
season rainfall through key growing areas of Maharashtra and in southern India 
have improved prospects for these crop areas. The west-central area has 
recently gone seasonally drier and warmer, although rain occurred early in 
December in minor growing areas of southeast Gujarat. 
    Seasonal to above average rains through the southeast Asia region will 
favor sugarcane production but may delay the harvest. 
    Sugarcane areas of southeast Africa benefited from significant rain 
activity and cooler temperatures during the past few weeks, both the irrigated 
and non-irrigated crop areas. This mostly favors the crop, except in areas of 
local flooding. Rain may have briefly delayed seasonal fieldwork.
