2015-16 Progress Report
During the 2015-16 financial year, SASRI was under considerable pressure to deliver advice, technology and solutions that would assist in alleviating the impact of one of the most severe droughts experienced inthe sugar industry. It was also the year when SASRI adopted an even more stringent approach towards selecting and approving projects that were aligned with a newly proposed strategic plan which emphasised the significance of delivery of relevant technology to growers, and SASRI’s role in facilitating implementation of innovative solutions to sustain the industry.
