New pay system on hold

THE quality cane payment won't begin this year as farmers need to be given time to understand how the system works.

Compared to the weight tonnage payment, FSC executive chairman Abdul Khan said farmers would be given more time to understand how they were paid through the quality of their crops.

He said giving time to farmers was important as it would allow them time to change the way they cultivate and prepared their cane farms.

"It won't be this season (quality cane payment) as we are running in parallel so farmers get a fair idea of how the quality system works," he said.

"So we are giving them a good year to change the way they cultivate their crops and get a maximum benefit out of it."

Mr Khan added tests had been done in Labasa to determine the quality of cane.

"So far it has been good and looks positive for us," he said.

"The testing has been done in Labasa and we are happy with the results."
