The graph shows rainfall recorded at Tower Hill in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and up to March 28th 2016. As can be noted, the amount of rainfall recorded for December 2015 was 6.35 mm higher when compared to December 2014. These unfavorable weather conditions resulted in the delivery of high mud levels at the opening of the 2015/2016 crop season which affected milling operations and the delivery of quality cane.
For the month of January 2016 there was a
notable improvement in weather conditions
with only 12.7 mm of recorded rainfall. This
permitted mud levels to reach an acceptable
limit. However, as can be noted, there was
a sudden spike in rainfall for the month of
February 2016 of 83.10 mm. This once more led to wet conditions and the need to monitor the quality of cane being delivered to the mill. For the month of March there was a large decrease in rainfall of 55.3 mm which resulted in more favorable weather conditions for the harvesting and delivery of cane for this ongoing 2015/2016 crop season.
