And while farmers are hoping to be able to deliver a bit more sugar cane to the factory given the extension, there will still be some loss incurred by farmers. We spoke with representatives of all three associations this morning who were present at the announcement and while they were all optimistic about the extension, their hope is that each farmer can get a fair opportunity to deliver some of their cane to the mill.


Ezekiel Cansino – BSCFA


“Ya habíamos sumado que hasta el quince íbamos a venir logrando hasta el 80% de lo que es la primera estimación que se dio o sea basado en las toneladas y hasta el 15 íbamos a estar llegando a ese 80% así de esa manera todos lo caneros que están en ceros íbamos a ver que ellos quiebren ese cero y si nos va a ayudar bastante a reducir la caña que ya está por quedarse en el campo.”


Elvis Canul – Chair, CSCPA


“Nuestra Asociación tiene registrado 91000 toneladas y esto nos ayuda, estos cinco días no ayuda aproximadamente 2000 toneladas más que íbamos a traer en la fábrica.”

“Nosotros comenzamos con 979 miembros con una cantidad de 279000 toneladas de caña.”


Dalila Ical – Reporter CTV3


“La zafra se iba a cerrar mañana, que tan significante iban hacer la perdidas y con esta extensión de cinco días como les ayuda?”


Cosme Hernandez – General Manager, PSCPA


“Perdidas vamos a tener siempre pero a los cinco días solo va a alivianar a ciertos caneros que no han entregado ni una tonelada de caña que nuestra Asociación son 27 contando las cuatro zonas que tenemos, tenemos cuatro personas en San Estevan que no han entregado una vareta de caña y el balance se divide entre las otras tres zonas esperemos de que con esos cinco días esas personas puedan lograr el 50% de su entrega porque son caneros chicos.”


As mentioned before, it is difficult at the time to say exactly how much cane will be left after the crop is closed but farmers are hoping for the best.
