Growers receive R583 from the authorities

R583, the new sugarcane variety developed by CERF, was released on 25 August 2008 at the Tamarins platform in the west highlands. The local authorities, at all the different levels, were pleased to personally hand over cuttings of the new sugarcane variety to the growers, giving out a strong message and a most encouraging sign for the sugarcane sector in our island.
