LONDON, Feb. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The sugar industry has come a long way in forging a sustainable path in its global expansion through increased international cooperation, providing transparent statistics and taking a proactive approach to new machinery and technologies.
As the world's largest sugarcane producer Brazil is leading the way in terms of industry mechanization with some 95% of the country's cane production now harvested by machine helping to attract new workers to rural areas, cut pollution, increase productivity as well as protect biodiversity.
"Brazil finds its sweet spot," the latest Top Stories installment on CNHIndustrial.com, examines the country's sugar success story. It also provides a case study from the Usina da Mata facility in the Sao Paolo region which has seen improved biodiversity and soil composition, and the use of less water since its transition to 100% mechanization in 2014.
