The article reports on the rise in Brazilian fuel ethanol prices for nine weeks in a row in 2010. It is stated that Sugarcane production in South Central Brazil is expected to be 570.2m tonnes for the 2010-2011 crop year. It is mentioned that as high global sugar prices drove some sugar mills to shift production from ethanol to raw sugar, fear of a Brazilian ethanol deficit in 2010-2011 has been spreading.
