Sugarcane Growing

Sugarcane is one of the several species of tall perennial true grasses of the genus Saccharum, tribe Andropogoneae, native to the warm temperate tropical regions.

Sugarcane belongs to the grass family (Poaceae), an economically important seed plant family that includes maize, wheat, rice, and sorghum and many forage crops.

Sugarcane crop is sensitive to the climate, soil type, irrigation, fertilizers, insects, disease control, varieties, and the harvest period

A mature stalk is typically composed of 11–16% fiber, 12–16% soluble sugars, 2–3% non-sugars, and 63–73% water.

Average yield of cane stalk is 60–70 tons per hectare per year, however can vary between 30 and 180 tons per hectare depending on knowledge and crop management approach used in sugarcane cultivation.

The main product of sugarcane is sucrose, which accumulates in the stalk internodes. Sucrose, extracted and purified in specialized mill factories, is used as raw material in human food industries or is fermented to produce ethanol.

Cane accounts for 80% of sugar produced

Sugarcane is the world's largest crop by production quantity.

  • Sugarcane Growing

    Sugarcane needs strong sunlight, fertile soil and lots of water (at least 1.5 meters of rain each year or access to irrigation) to grow. After a few weeks new shoots grow from buds on the joints of the setts and break through the surface of the soil.

    Up to 12 stalks grow from each set, forming what is known as the stool of sugarcane. A crop of cane takes about 9-16 months to grow in cold places (where it is cooler) it takes 18-24 months to grow.. When ripe, the cane is usually about 2-4 meters tall
