Cane farmers getting bounty under GOB’s farmer assistance programme

Posted: Thursday, August 27, 2020. 12:52 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Following a harrowing season blighted by drought and COVID-19, cane farmers are anxious to get started on preparations for the next season.

With additional funds approved under a new COVID-19 relief programme, a total of $5 million will be available for support to cane farmers in general – or at least those who have formally registered before May 30 of this year.
