New meteorological bulletins for the sugarcane agribusiness

The Colombian sugarcane agribusiness, through Cenicaña, now has four new products to offer timely information on the weather conditions in the Cauca river valley, with which it seeks to contribute to mitigating the impact of climate variability in production processes.
With that purpose, as of March 26 they will be available for consultation on the website www.cenicana.org the following bulletins for the seven homologous areas of the Cauca river valley:
- Daily bulletin: current cloudiness conditions and rain and temperature forecast.
- Rain and temperature forecast bulletin for the weekend. It will be broadcast every Friday.
- Weekly newsletter with the rain forecast. Broadcast on Thursdays.
- Seasonal forecast bulletin that includes the behavior of the meteorological variables of the previous month and the projection of rainfall and temperature for the following month. Monthly issue.
The information provided through these bulletins is a support for sugar cane mills and growers to make decisions about the agronomic management of the crop and in the manufacturing processes.
In this way, it is sought that the sugarcane agribusiness adapts to the climatic phenomena that considerably affect agriculture in order to remain productive, profitable and sustainable.

In addition to these products, the Agroclimatological Service also participates in the National Agroclimatic Technical Table and the Regional Agroclimatic Technical Table of Valle del Cauca to expand the scope of the information generated by agribusiness to other productive sectors and thus contribute to the adaptability of the region. to climate variability.
