Cane access road upgrade

CANE access road upgrades are being conducted according to the harvest schedule, says Fiji Sugar Corporation executive chairman Abdul Khan.

Responding to recent concerns highlighted by grower representative organisations in the Western Division, Mr Khan reassured farmers work was being done and would be completed in time for the start of harvest and crush for each sector.

"Two weeks ago, our field staff had set out a program to ensure the areas that will be harvested first have all their roads upgraded in time and according to the harvest schedule," he said.

Representatives from the Rarawai-Penang Cane Producers Association and Lautoka Cane Producers Association raised concerns last week that no visible work had been carried out on cane access roads in their areas.

The 2014 harvest and crushing season will begin on June 18 at Labasa. Processing will begin at Rarawai in Ba on June 19, and sugar production will start on July 1 at the country's largest mill in Lautoka. Crushing at the Penang mill in Rakiraki has been delayed for a week and should begin around June 24.
