Staff of the Fund (inspectorate division) undertakes periodical inspections (a minimum of three annually) to assess the condition of land under cane cultivation. Competitive weeds, gaps between stools, bad fertilization,etc are classified as adverse items. Planters are advised of the condition of their cane plantations in case of existence of any adverse item. The planter can request for a re-inspection of his fields in case of disagreement. The adverse item thus recorded reduces compensation payable in case of event years.
