This type of sugar is actually a type of grass that can grow up to 18 feet high. Today many sugar crops are genetically modified so that diseases do not spread. Remember that these crops can only be grown in tropical regions, such as certain parts of Brazil and South Africa.
The great thing about starting a sugar crop is that it can completely regrow itself, which means the farmer just takes the stalks and leaves the roots behind. This makes harvesting a lot easier for the farmer. It takes roughly 12 months to mature to its full potential, although this does depend which country you are in. A sugar cane farmer has to invest in rollback trucks or buy a trailer for sale in the area, if you haven’t already got one.
As a sugar farmer you can take advantage of the other benefits that it holds. The juice created from the sugar has anti-cancer benefits, especially for prostate and breast cancer. You might be thinking this seems really unhealthy, but it holds less sugar than a bottle of coke. Another interesting way of using the sugar would be for electricity and bio-fuels, as sugar holds a very high percentage of energy. I am sure this has given you a second thought to farming this wonderful plant.
