Sugarcane Harvest Grows 20 Percent in 2017

Havana, May 30 (Prensa Latina) The 2017 sugarcane harvest has ended with a growth of 20 percent compared with 2016, despite the effects caused by drought in the country, it was reported here today.

During a meeting with the press, Azcuba Business Group vice president, Noel Casañas, explained that despite this increase, the plan only complied with 85 percent and among the factors affecting that result are the intense water shortage that caused great impact to the whole country.

This situation was the responsible for the fall in the estimated sugarcane to be milled and the reduction of its agricultural yield, with its consequent impact on the productivity of harvesting and transport equipment, he said says a Granma newspaper report.
