Sugar prices down, but drought hurts Valley’s production
18 November 2013 - Valley Morning Star
“The Rio Grande Valley Sugar Growers Inc. recently fired up the only sugar mill in the state of Texas, and has begun their 41st consecutive year of harvesting sugar cane grown by the Valley’s 123 sugar cane farmers.
Texas is one of four states in the United States where sugar cane is grown, and it is all grown within 50 miles of Rio Grande Valley Sugar Growers’ mill just west of Santa Rosa. Other sugar cane producing states are Louisiana, Florida and Hawaii.”
