Brazil center-south sugar output surges in second half Nov.

SAO PAULO, Dec 10 (Reuters) - Brazil's cane, sugar and
ethanol production surged in the second half of November in the
main center-south cane belt after dry weather helped ensure
smooth crushing, industry association Unica said on Monday.
    Sugar mills will begin to shut down in coming weeks as the
harvest comes to a close and will pick up again with the next
crop in April.
    Total sugar production for the season reached 32.9 million
tonnes, compared to last year's output of 31.1 million tonnes as
of Dec. 1, Unica said in its bi-weekly report.
