Sugarcane Photo - Photos of Sugarcane Plantations in Martinique

sugarcane plantation

Initially, there is sugarcane, a tropical herbaceous plant, whose stems can reach 2 to 5 meters.

Every year, around the end of February, it's time for cutting...

In more than half of the plantations in Martinique, sugarcane is still cut in the traditional way...

That is, by hand, close to the ground, using a machete, in order to guarantee better yield and regrowth.

It's worth noting that the same cane will regrow every year for 7 years.

A good cutter can cut up to 5 tons of cane in one day!!!
