This year 808 tonne was distributed from the 3 IPL plots. The plot holders put a lot of time and effort into growing clean seed cane for the Isis district and when only 85 growers out of a 250 collect clean cane it is very disappointing.
It is 2014, eight years since we brought Q208 down from North Queensland and some growers are still using that progeny.
If growing sugar cane is your business, surely 3 days out of 365 days is not too much to ask to put aside to collect clean cane.
The Graph below is a break down of the tonnes distributed.
