Bid to reduce spillage

IMPROVEMENTS to rail lines, increased maintenance and the proper loading of carts are some of the measures being put in place by the FSC to reduce spillage this season.

Executive chairman Abdul Khan said while the corporation acknowledged maintenance falls under its domain, the loading of carts was an issue farmers needed to address.

"There are actually two main issues here that we are tackling," he said.

"Firstly, to improve our rail lines and rail cart maintenance so that these are in good order for the coming season.

"Secondly, we're asking the framers to load the rails properly so that when our locomotives are pulling these carts on our rail system, they do not de-rail and lead to a likely loss of time."

West cane growers raised concerns about the loss of cane because of spillage which is called "late cane" in industry term.
