Jim Simon, President of the American Sugar Cane League, spoke with the hosts of "Mornings With Ken & Bernie" today about this year's sugar cane crop.

Simon says that farmers have actually benefitted from the lack of rain in Louisiana.  He says the drought conditions, in most cases, will force part of the sugar cane stalk to grow taller, therefore producing a more robust crop.

This year, Simon expects that farmers will be getting a better price for their crop, that is, if the rain decides to come in nice steady showers.
