The current sugarcane planting model is highly inefficient. The high need for genetic material, equipment, operations and inputs makes this one of the most costly activities of the sugarcane production process.
CTC is working on the development of a new planting technology, based on the use of sugarcane seeds obtained through cloning techniques.
This technology will provide several benefits, such as high multiplication rates, lower
production costs, healthy genetic material, operational streamlining, higher planting efficiency
and release of nursery area for commercial growing.
