THE wet weather in Labasa yesterday affected yet another day of cane-cutting.
The farmers said they were worried about having standover cane at the end of the harvest.
Vunimoli farmer Brijanand Sharma said the wet weather meant no work for labourers because trucks could not travel through the boggy farms.
"The mud is soft and if trucks travel to the farm to load cane, the tyres might get stuck and it will be a big problem for me," he said.
"Everytime it rains, the labourers don't work and the farmers have to fork out more money to feed them.
"I hope this wet weather finishes soon so we can harvest our cane before the season ends."
Fellow Labasa farmer Bal Dass said the wet weather never benefitted farmers.
"Whenever it rains, all work on the farm stops and harvesting is affected," he said.
"Some farmers have piled cane on the farm but can't load it because of the weather.
"When there's bad weather, the farmers can't finish harvesting."
