Brazil’s Raízen has presented a plan to the government of the city of Santa Bárbara d’Oeste, in São Paulo state, to contain fires on cane fields during the drought season, according to Todo Dia.
Raízen said that it would prioritize the sugarcane planting in the most urbanized regions and provide a larger team of brigadiers and security guards, as well as more equipment such as water trucks to control potential fires in cane fields in the municipality.
The company also said it would install monitoring cameras on the cane fields, and intensify fire awareness and prevention campaigns in the municipality.
Raízen said that it doesn’t use fire as a harvesting method, following a protocol signed with São Paulo’s state government.
