Welcome to SIRDI
meet the team
SIRDI's Mission is to contribute to the development of a sugar cane industry that is efficient, globally competitive, and sustainable through transfer of improved technologies.
I was motivated to become a Cane Farmer because of my desire to turn our family farm into a sustainable business... Growing my acreage gives us the ability to sustain our revenue and grow our employee base.
The longevity of the industry lies in the protection of the farmers which will involve all the farmers, the miller, and GOB working together with the support of SIRDI. This is the future that I am seeking, a future of success for all.
This is clearly a SWEET WIN for all in the industry.
Mrs. Francisca Mendez
Through Sirdi's Farmer Fields School, I have been able to learn about best practices on how to grow and harvest sugar cane which i didn't know before. I encourage my fellow cane farmers to support SIRDI's initiative and to join the Farmer Field School Program.
Francisca has been able to increase her yields per acre for replanted fields from 21 to 40 tons per acre.
