Three days to learn about and highlight innovation and research in the sugarcane agribusiness

A total of 37 papers were presented by Cenicaña at the XII Tecnicaña Congress, consolidating itself as a benchmark in science, technology and innovation among the main sugarcane agro-industries in Latin America.

Between September 14 and 16, Cenicaña shared with attendees from more than 24 countries its main advances in the development of more resilient sugarcane varieties, the implementation of practices and experiences for a more sustainable management of the crop and in the search for alternatives to take advantage of the potential offered by sugar cane. “This scientific production supports the vision that the sector had 45 years ago, when it decided to create its Research Center and promised to promote a new model of institutional development to do science from the regions, with services of national scope and world-class research. . We are very pleased with the wide participation of Cenicaña in the academic agenda of this international event and for having had the opportunity to share our progress to continue contributing to the construction of a country agenda for 2030”, specified the General Director of Cenicaña, Freddy Fernando Garces.
