Las Tunas Sugar Company is committed to achieve its sugarcane sowing plan

More than five years without crowning the efforts in sugarcane sowing and an extremely complicated scenario for the Cuban economy has caused an air of concern to float over the environment in Las Tunas, which has generated the question that heads this work.

Las Tunas, Cuba.- Of course, we would all like it to happen, but this negative history and the permanence of the limitations resulting from the blockade and the world economic crisis tend to question the certainty that, in the current calendar, Las Tunas will be able to fulfill the commitment to plant 15,218 hectares of sugarcane.

Several actions can make the difference between what was done yesterday and what is expected to be achieved in the present, but there are two of them that are decisive to make the desired leap: human resources and the quality of the plan developed.

Having a workforce that, after stumbling over the same stone so many times, is more competent, committed, and aware that it must focus its management on solving problems and working with what it has, without waiting for promises that are not fulfilled.

This, together with feasible plans that can be executed because they are an expression of the feelings of those involved, becomes a guarantee of the longed-for desire to put an end to the non-compliances and stop the decrease in sugarcane production in the province.

If these arguments are true, then it can be said that the planting plans proposed for 2023 by Colombia (2,254.1 hectares); Amancio Rodriguez (1,365.8), Majibacoa (2,338.1 and Antonio Guiteras (9,260), are achievable goals as long as they act quickly and banish from their environments the passivity, inattention, lack of organization and indiscipline, among other subjectivities that caused so much damage in the past.

I share the vision of some specialists when they predict possible blows - lack of resources - that cannot be avoided, but even under these conditions, the units must find a way to take a little piece out of the plan every day. It does not matter if it is half, one, two, or more hectares. The important thing is to add and add.

They also do not lose sight of the fact that since it is a task that is carried out in the open air, always exposed to the whims of nature, it is necessary to work under the principle of not leaving for tomorrow what you can do today.

Therefore, no expense or effort should be spared to achieve the goal of maximum quality, to achieve high germination, and increased agricultural yields per hectare.

Rather than predicting the outcome of the annual plan, it should be noted that the men and women, managers, and specialists in charge of the mission have made it known that they will do their utmost to achieve results in line with the expected quantity.
