Albion Estate to start harvesting operations

The Albion sugar estate is expected to start harvesting today and grinding operations are expected to commence in a few days, following the  burning of the first beds of canes yesterday, with Estate Manager, Threbhowan Shiwprasad saying that he is  optimistic about the future of the estate and GuySuCo in general. 

Initially, the first crop was expected to start later in the month, however due to the favourable weather, the Albion Estate decided to bring forward the date and get the ball rolling, as GuySuCo works towards a production target of 97,420 metric tonnes for 2021.

“We did a steam trial yesterday and in the steam trial most of the vessels we run up, they run very successful, all the results that we are looking for. We still have a few adjustment and I am very optimistic with some of the work we do that the factory will be grinding more hours with less down time and that would help us,” Shiwprasad told Stabroek News yesterday.

Guyana Diaspora Online Forum

We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide.  Most of our readers are in the USA, Canada, and the UK.  Our Blog and Newsletter  would not only carry  articles and videos on Guyana, but also other articles on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers in over 200 countries, many of them non-Guyanese  We hope that you like our selections.

It is estimated that over one million Guyanese, when counting their dependents, live outside of Guyana.  This exceeds the population of Guyana, which is now about 750,000.  Many left early in the 50’s and 60’s while others went with the next wave in the 70’s and 80’s.  The latest wave left over the last 20 years. This outflow of Guyanese, therefore, covers some three generations. This outflow still continues today, where over 80 % of U.G. graduates now leave after graduating.  We hope this changes, and soon.

Guyanese, like most others, try to keep their culture and pass it on to their children and grandchildren.  The problem has been that many Guyanese have not looked back, or if they did it was only fleetingly.  This means that the younger generations and those who left at an early age know very little about Guyana since many have not visited the country.  Also, if they do get information about Guyana, it is usually negative and thus the cycle of non-interest is cultivated.

This Guyana Diaspora Online Forum , along with its monthly newsletter, aims at bringing Guyanese together to support positive news, increase travel and tourism in Guyana and, in general, foster the birth of a new Guyana, which has already begun notwithstanding the negative news that grabs the headlines.  As the editor and manager of the publication, I am committed to delivering Blog entries and Newsletters that are politically balanced, and focused on the positive ideas we wish to share and foster among Guyanese.
