We are pleased to present you with the September 2021 issue of the ISSCT Bulletin which you may access through the following link:
We had requested notes on the Impact of COVID-19 in various sugar cane industries across the world and we have received feedback from 15 countries as follows:
Asia: China, India, Pakistan and Thailand
Africa: Mauritius, Reunion/France and South Africa
Americas: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala and Mexico
The pandemic has affected the sugar cane industry including production and R&D at various levels. The involvement of the industry in providing assistance in various forms to its surrounding communities in their fight against the Coronavirus has been highlighted.
The Bulletin also contains information on latest news, research, past and upcoming events related to sugar cane technology.
We hope that you will find it interesting and worthy of your time. We would like to encourage you to contribute to the October issue of the Bulletin which should reach us by 24 September.
