For the 2021/22 sugar harvest, the only factory in the country that produces Fitomas-M, located in Havana, will manufacture 120,000 liters of that product, Barbara Rodriguez, Business Director of the Cuban Research Institute of Sugar Cane Derivatives (ICIDCA), told Prensa Latina.

Rodriguez said that the economic effects to produce that ripening regulator in the country consist in obtaining more sucrose and reducing importation of chemical ripening agents.

Fitomas-M is used 45 days before sugarcane harvest, from October to January, when the plant does not ripen sufficiently to reach high sucrose content and industrial yields naturally.
