The regime run FSC has been promising the quality payment system for cane for years and this year was supposed to be THE year for introduction. But at the last moment they’ve been forced to admit it won’t go ahead. Have they forgotten they said the system was “on hold” in 2012? According to Abdul Khan, FSC has done tests in Labasa to determine the quality of the cane and the results have “been good and looks positive for us”. Does he really expect us to believe this? Yields have been going down for years as farmers have cut back on fertiliser due to high prices and doubts about whether their investment will be safe with FSC in the hands of a regime that has lied for years about the management of FSC.
