It is considered that the Agroindustrial Sugar Company “Abel Santamara Cuadrado” in Encrucijada owns 60 percent of its arable area on the coast, and the difficulties in preparing it for the planting of sugarcane and other crops, as well as management, are also a concern. In the entity that is able to use the technical scientific progress necessary for the development of the country, in the areas of the UBPC “Tato Madruga,” the Field Day was held, which showed the teaching of the Doctor of Science Yoel Betancourt Rodríguez, National Coordinator of Tillage Services, and Engineer José Quintana González, director of the company.
“The soils of Abel Santamaría are very complex from a physical and physical-mechanical point of view, so they are managed in a different way, hence the need, based on all this problem, to introduce scarifiers to prepare the same ones,” stressed the Doctor of Sciences.
The goal of the day is to teach managers, heads of production units, and technology technicians how to use the soil scarifier (subsoiler) to prepare the land and the many advantages of using it compared to the traditional systems.
Betancourt Rodríguez added that with the use of scarifiers, “we can reduce the time needed to prepare the land in these conditions to about one month, and it also has other benefits such as not reversing in the prism of the earth and avoiding poverty.”.
The equipment used, unlike plows and harrows without bearings or grease, is built in the company’s workshops, which is an advantage that increases fuel savings by 40% compared to other modalities; it nips in a fashion, aka way. The grasses guarantee more than a caballeria of work per day, and for the development of the works, they admit the greater humidity of the lands.
