Mr Giordani reported good milling performance at Plane Creek, which is expected to reach the halfway mark early this week.

"Bin weights have been good, as has the quality of the cane coming into the factory," he said.

"CCS levels continue to rise with the cool dry weather, and this week's average is just under 14.8 units."

Average CCS at Proserpine has risen by one unit since the July crushing update.

"Harvest groups have been able to make good headway by moving into paddocks that were wet earlier in the season," Mr Giordani said.

"Weekly throughputs are increasing. Last week's total of 93,500 tonnes was the highest for the season to date."
