Sugar output from Brazil's main center-south cane region slipped in the second half of July to 2.24 million tonnes, down from the 2.55 million tonne output in the prior two weeks due to rains over the productive region, the cane industry said on Tuesday.

In its latest biweekly crushing report, industry association Unica said cumulative sugar output since the start of the season in April had reached 15.13 million tonnes by July 31, up 9 percent from the same period a year ago.
