Information links

This site aims to provide easy access to information relevant to the sugarcane industry and in particular to information related to the environmental, social and economic sustainability of sugarcane production. With the increasing pressures on sugarcane farmers and processors from their buyers, consumers and the public, particularly in regard to the impacts on the environment, there is a need for organisations and farmers to have access to good information. We aim at this site to provide a wide source of links to such information and hope that you are able to find what you need. If you have suggestions of other useful links that would support this goal please contact us.
