Weather conditions have on overall been rather favourable for growth and development of the crop, except for the gusts that followed the passage of tropical storm Gael in the vicinity of Mauritius and that resulted in some leaf laceration and lodging in the most advanced fields.  Total height is still exceeding that of 2008 at the same period though it is slightly below the normal. [4/3/09]

Overall weather conditions, especially the well-distributed rainfall over the sugarcane areas, have been conducive to growth and development of the crop. Based on the present growth status, a better crop than that of 2008 is expected if no adverse weather conditions are experienced during the remaining part of the crop cycle. [pdf 3/2/09]
