WORLD SUGAR PROSPECTS 
 
   Drier weather in key sugarcane growing areas of Queensland Australia will be 
mostly favorable at this time, after heavy rain and wind associated with a 
strong tropical cyclone at the end of March. 
    Mostly favorable conditions for developing cane in Sao Paulo Brazil. 
However, a recent drier trend is of some concern. 
    Periods of scattered rains may slow the harvest of old crop sugarcane 
through southern China while improving soil moisture for planting and 
development of the new crop. 
    Showers in sugarcane growing areas of Ganges plain and far south India 
during the winter period will have favored development of early planted new 
crop while causing only minor field work delays. The sugarcane belt has turned 
drier and hotter again more recently. 
   Sugarcane areas of southeast Africa have again turned drier and much warmer 
since late last week. Seasonal rainfall has averaged below normal in some 
sugarcane areas which may impact final production numbers. 
   Seasonal to above average rains through the southeast Asia region will favor 
sugarcane production but may delay the harvest.
