Agronomic Crops & Sugar Cane

Sugarcane is a crop that can be grown throughout Florida.  In most areas of the state it is grown only as a hobby crop for syrup production or as a source of “chewing cane”.  In South Florida, along the shores of Lake Okeechobee, sugarcane is grown commercially for the production of crystal or “white” sugar. This overview (46KB PDF) was prepared to answer the most frequently asked questions about the commercial Florida sugarcane industry and to describe what is involved in the production of sugarcane and sugar.
