A report published on Granma daily on Friday addresses the issue while taking into account the difficulties mainly caused by the United States blockade against the Cuban economy and the impact of Covid-19.

One of the problems is the harvest’s failure to solve breakages and operational interruptions.

This was discussed in a review of the working commission, made up of government officials, the Azcuba business group, as well as union leaders and the Association of Small Farmers (ANAP).

This evaluation was about the sugarcane campaign in the agro-industrial companies in Cuba’s central and eastern regions.

It specifies that there are several problems behind the financial limitations caused, among other factors, by the blockade and the world economic crisis, due to the pandemic.

Difficulties when it comes to purchasing much-needed supplies, such as batteries, tires, parts, pieces and aggregates for the different technologies, is one of the reasons why the sugar factories started the milling season with a deficit in the completion of the cutting means.

Authorities insisted that with the restructuring of the sector and the creation of 56 sugar companies and one sugarcane enterprise, a 50-percent increase in sowing was planned for 2022, with respect to last year’s actual growth.
