SA Canegrowers' Development Manager, Makhosazana Dlamini this week visited seedcane plots planted in the Komatipoort region with funding from Coca-Cola South Africa's Mintirho Foundation. The seedcane is aimed at improving the yields and sustainability of smallscale growers in the area.

"I was so happy and delighted with what I saw there. The growth and quality of the seedcane is nothing short of amazing," Dlamini said.

In the picture, Dlamini stands with Komati Agribusiness Advisor, Vincent Qwabe, and SA Canegrowers' funded intern from the South African Sugar Association's Youth Empowerment Programme, Manqoba Sono. 

Sono is working with Qwabe and the cooperative who owns the land and with the Coca-Cola Seedcane project management in Komati.
