60,000 Tons Cane To Be Harvested In Labasa

About 60,000 tonnes of cane are yet to be harvested and delivered to Fiji Sugar Corporations (FSC) Labasa mill.

This was confirmed by Sugar Cane Growers Council chief executive officer Sundresh Chetty who’s currently visiting seven sectors in Labasa and three sectors in Seaqaqa.

Mr Chetty said Daku and Wainikoro areas had the highest tonnes of left over cane.

“I will be in Macuata for three days carrying out survey to see the cane that is remaining in the fields and to ensure that we harvest all the left over canes,” Mr Chetty said.

“We are working out ways to assist the farmers in Daku and Wainikoro.”

He said Labasa mill has crushed about 740,000 tonnes of cane as of yesterday.

Mr Chetty revealed that all the ten sectors had left over cane and this was normal at this time of the year.

Labasa mill crushes 4,000 tonnes of cane per day and it has been announced that the mill will be closed on November 19.
