The Binh Dinh Sugar Joint Stock Company (BISUCO) has poured 13 million USD into expanding its production capacity and developing sugarcane material sustainably in the central province of Binh Dinh.

According to BISUCO General Director Pham Ngoc Lien, the company has spent 12 million USD installing a new production line with a daily capacity of 2,500 tonnes, raising the plant’s total capacity to 5,000 tonnes per day.

As planned, the line will be officially operational by 2014.

BISUCO has also invested almost 1 million USD in buying ploughing machines for farmers in material areas.

Additionally, the company has carried out research to grow new sugarcane varieties, while working closely with the provincial authorities and those of Vinh Thanh, Van Canh, Tay Son districts and An Nhon town to develop four large-scale fields with a total area of nearly 200 ha in the 2013-2014 winter-spring crop in order to ensure material supply to its plant.

In the 2012-2013 winter-spring crop, BISUCO built three large-scale fields on a total area of 117 ha, achieving an average output of 75-80 tonnes per ha, 20-25 tonnes/ha more than those of normal fields.-VNA
