BSES Limited will be hosting the 9th International Society of Sugar Cane Technologists (ISSCT) Agronomy and Agricultural Engineering workshop in Townsville on 9-14 September 2012. The theme is “Sustainable Sugarcane Production”.

These workshops are held at various international locations every 3 years to allow more informal and in depth discussion between technologists than is possible at a major ISSCT Congress. A previous workshop held in Australia in 1997 featured irrigation as the main topic. A combination of agronomy and agricultural engineering topics for the forthcoming workshop reflects the interdependence of these skills in a sustainable production system.
