Secure all livestock

CANE farmers in the Western Division are being urged to clear drains and secure livestock and machinery in preparation for inclement weather expected this week.

Sugar Cane Growers Council CEO Sundresh Chetty said farmers had to ensure that all precautions were taken in light of warnings from the authorities.

"We have a very promising crop this season and farmers are urged to clear drains and secure livestock and machinery in anticipation of the adverse weather conditions that are expected," he said.

"So far we have escaped being affected by the wet weather and floods in some areas in the division.

"Because of the promising crop this season, we hope farmers take extra care and try to minimise the impact of weather on crops."

Mr Chetty said farmers should ensure that drains around cane fields were kept clear of debris and grass.

"This will ensure that there is no stagnant water in the event of heavy rain or flooding."
