What Is Sugar Cane?

Sugar cane is mainly used for its sugar. Sugar is made from growing the cane, harvesting, extracting, evaporation, and lastly storage. Sugar cane is about 70% water and the rest is sugar and fibers. During the harvesting operation around 70-80% of the cane trash is left in the field with 20-30% taken to the mill together. The 70-80% of cane can be re used into other materials like straws! Sugarcane is considered one of the most environmentally friendly crops because it requires minimal fertilizer and pesticides. It gets most of what it needs from the region’s rich, moist soil. Not only do our fields of sugarcane produce food, they also provide valuable habitat for animals.
