Cane Supply Agreement

As your bargaining agent, CANEGROWERS will seek the best conditions and terms from your sugar milling company. Your local Burdekin team is backed up by the wider CANEGROWERS expertise and experienced legal counsel.  

Water Perils Crop Compensation Scheme

The Scheme covers a loss due to cane being condemned, or the costs of mitigation to prevent cane being condemned, through water from any source after a controlled burn-off. The scheme has superior features such as less restrictions on when you can burn and compensation for CCS decline in burnt cane when the mill is unable to restart due to wet weather.

Fire Perils Insurance

You automatically have access to fire perils insurance cover. The policy provides cover for loss of crop due to accidental fire, transit, and hail. This cover is provided at a competitive price due to the economies of scale that CANEGROWERS brings to the table in terms of volume of cane tonnes to be insured.
