BSI cane field set ablaze

On Wednesday afternoon, someone set fire to over 9 acres of sugarcane belonging to BSI. The cane field is near Estrella, Corozal.

There has been no word as to who set the field on fire, but it comes at a time when relations between BSI and the cane farmers association are strained and negotiations have not been going well.

BSI’s new strategy is to bypass the association and get individual farmers to sign the commercial agreement for the start of the crop season by the end of November.
