The movement of sugarcane farmers from one association to the other is still ongoing and involves all three associations. In a recent meeting however, all three groups have agreed to a cutoff date. BSCFA Committee of Management Chair Ezekiel Cansino says that date is right around the corner.

“El viernes pusimos la fecha que va hacer que estemos aceptando traslados de caneros de Asociación a Asociación y esta decisión fue tomada el viernes pasado por las tres Asociaciones tuvimos una reunión y decidimos de que el viernes once de Septiembre va hacer el  date line para hacer estos traslados.”

So far the Progressive Sugar Cane Farmers Association reports to have received a little over twenty new applications. Reports are that a majority of the farmers who are moving are joining the Corozal Sugar Cane Farmers Association, while some farmers are retuning back to the BSCFA.
