R583 released

The new sugarcane variety, R583, was launched today at the Tamarins platform. A number of key personalities were present and stressed the importance of sugarcane in Reunion Island.

The variety is not suitable for cultivation everywhere, but is well adapted to high, dry areas.

Following speeches from key figures from the Region, Département, Prefecture, Chamber of Agriculture, St Paul town authorities and the Téréos group, growers were given a small bunch of the new variety R583.
