CANEShortly after midday today, word spread like wild fire that a portion of the BSI/ASR cane field which is located in an area known as Slip Dock in the Libertad Village was set ablaze. Reliable sources to our newsroom say that 400 hundred tons of cane under BSI’s ‘Research program’ was completely burnt down around 12:30 today.
