ortegaAs mentioned in the weekly crop review report it took 12.06 tons of cane to produce one ton of sugar, this week. That’s not good news since it means that cane quality has dropped significantly. What makes matters worse, is that as we lean closer to the end of the 2013-2014 Sugar Cane Crop Season, deliveries of cane to the mill has been slow. Now, it is important to remember that cane famers get paid based on quality and not quantity thus they are being asked to deliver better quality cane to the factory.


Alfredo Ortega– Vice Chair, BSCFA


“En estos momentos quiero aprovechar a decirle a los caneros de que no estamos haciendo muy bien en la calidad de cana esperamos de ellos realmente cooperen en entregar cana más fresco al ingenio y que traten aquellos grupos que no han entregado cana para miembros de su grupo que lo hagan aunque sea una porción y que puedan aprovechar de entregar algo de su cana por ellos no hacen su dinero si no entregan sus cana entonces la Asociación les pide a los grupos de que por favor luchen de entregarle algo a todas esas personas para que así el peso no solo caiga en solo un canero. La situación es de unos tienen  miedo en el tiempo ellos van y queman y eso sale de que vaya quedando más cana quemado y más cana quemado y después cuando calle una lluvia la caña más rápido se deteriora especialmente cuando se acaba de quemar y le calle un lluvia más rápido se deteriora esa cana por eso es muy importante de que ellos vayan quemando así periódicamente eso es muy importante para que así eso no afecte tanto la calidad que en estos momentos tenemos.”


The association executives made mention that the only those farmers who deliver to the mil are allowed diesel subsidies.
