Cuba is seeking to increase sugar production

Havana, Aug 25 ( Prensa Latina) Cuba is currently seeking to increase the surface for sugar cane crops to guarantee the rise in sugar production and byproducts in the coming and following harvests.

Experts from the Azcuba Business Group agree that planting more sugar cane in the available fields is not enough; it is necessary to add more areas to increase raw material volumes for coming harvests.

The lack of much-needed supplies due to the tightening of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba and the international crisis resulting from Covid-19, prevent obtaining higher sugar cane yields, expert Federico Sulroca said.

The assistant researcher at the National Institute of Sugar Cane Research (INICA), which is part of AZCUBA, told Prensa Latina that this institution is making progress in the implementation of precision agriculture.

Thus, they are carrying out studies and implementing irrigation automation, one of the activities that contribute to obtaining more sugar cane per hectare the most.

This type of agriculture plays an important role through the use of drons and other satellite means, as well as new information technologies to detect plagues, soil humidity, machinery operation, irrigation and other activities.
