The Fiji Sugar Corporation is calling on cane farmers to report any problems related to the planting of their cane varieties to the field officers.
The corporation has received reports of some varieties dying.
FSC Executive Chair Abdul Khan says, farmers can also contact him directly about the issue.
Gatti Arjun, a cane farmer of Waimari in Ra says he had some problems with the Cuba variety of cane.
Other farmers in the area claim the Naidiri variety isn’t yielding good results.
Khan says a special team from Lautoka visited the affected areas and conducted studies.
Results of the studies are yet to be released.
