How to Grow Sugarcane and Increase Yields

Sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum) is a perennial grass of the Saccharum genus, Poaceae family. Its cultivation began in ancient times in the South Pacific region, where there is a rotation of dry and wet seasons that is favorable for this crop. Sugarcane plant is used to produce sugar that is distinguished by its brown color and the aroma of molasses. Over 60% of the sugar produced in the world is obtained from sugarcane (the stems contain 10 – 18% sucrose).
After processing, the stems and leaves of the plant are used as livestock feed or used as fuel. Sugarcane is also grown to serve as a raw material for the production of cardboard and paper.
