Update: 11.56am The military government has taken a series of consequential actions which has affected the sugar industry.
Fiji Cane Growers Association national president Attar Singh said the coup allowed Fiji to lose out on the European Union aid of $350m.
"That money is much needed to salvage the ailing sugar industry and deteriorating infrastructures around the country," he said.
Mr Singh added the regime had taken away a democratically elected government but the farmers should not allow it to remove their rights too.
He said the interim government was doing nothing to cushion the global prices of items for the people of Fiji especially the interim Finance Minister Mahendra Chaudhry who claimed to champion the plight of the poor yet did nothing to help during these hard times.
