Case IH Will Present Its Solutions and Best Practices for Sugar Cane

Sugar Industry 
LUGANO, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 --  Case IH is the
top level sponsor of the Indonesia Sugar Congress 2012, which will be
held in Jakarta on the 6th and 7th of November 2012.  
The Congress is an international platform for global sugar producers,
refiners, equipment manufacturers and end-users looking for
investments, trades and partnerships in Indonesia. The event will see
the participation of Dr Ir. H. Suswono, Indonesia's Minister of
Agriculture, and other key speakers from government bodies,
industry-related associations and companies. They will outline the
most pressing challenges of the country's sugar industry and discuss
opportunities for growth. 
As Platinum Sponsor, Case IH will have a significant speaking role in
the two-day event. Kenneth J. Schmidt, Case IH Product Performance
Manager for sugar cane equipment, will take part in the proceedings
for the "Growing Indonesian Sugar" technical session that will be
held in the afternoon of November 6th. 
Mr Schmidt, who draws upon almost forty years of expertise in sugar
cane equipment, will offer an insight into the optimization of sugar
cane harvesting performance, highlighting the benefits of
mechanization and the impact of advanced cultivation methods on sugar
cane farming productivity. 
Indonesia is South-East Asia's biggest consumer of sugar, which is
primarily dedicated to direct human needs. With around 240 million
people, it is the world's fourth most populous country and is showing
a growing trend in the sugar industry. The use of agricultural
technologies will be fundamental in developing the sugar cane
business and in meeting this country's sugar needs, thus moving
Indonesia towards a greater independence from sugar imports.  
Drawing from over 50 years of worldwide leadership in sugar cane
technologies, Case IH is able to provide not only first-class
machinery for all sugar cane operations but also qualified knowledge
and a full range of services, including after-sales support,
technical training, tailored financing solutions and advice on best
practices to help the 
long term growth of its customers' business. 
"Sugar cane mechanization can help the industry to meet the growing
market needs," commented Kenneth J. Schmidt. "It can be effectively
applied to guarantee continuous operations and increased productivity
with benefits in terms of safety for operators and efficient use of
resources. Moreover, the adoption of the right set of machinery with
appropriate cultivation methods could in turn result in increased
outcome, higher yields and profitability".
