ABOUT DIECA

In view of the need to recognize and face the possible obstacles, the sugarcane sector has to deal with in the country we created DIECA. This is the acronym in Spanish for the Sugar Cane Research and Extension Direction (DIECA), a scientific and technological organization created with the purpose of researching future diseases, plagues, and problems that might affect the sugarcane sector, as well as the possible solutions and remedies for them. This organization renders services, no exceptions, to every sugar producer and manufacturer organized and represented by LAICA.
