BSI demonstrates the “Sweet Sampling” process

1 min read

The Belize Sugar Industry held a Pre-Harvest Sugar Cane Quality Testing Program Demonstration for the media in Orange Walk this morning. The demonstration highlighted the “Sweet Sampling for Sweeter Returns” project, which monitors sugar cane quality.The program came about after farmers questioned BSI as to how they improved their sugar cane quality. The questions arose after farmers started delivering some of the best quality sugar cane to the mill. BSI wrote a project to help the farmers and obtained a majority of the funding from the Hershey Company.  The objective of the program is to help farmers deliver the sugar cane with the highest quality and in so doing obtain maximum yields from their crop. This then translates to better cane payments for farmers. So how does it work? Dalila Ical has the details.
