Must See Video - Burning of Cane

Sugar is the second largest contributor for Fiji economy. The harvesting season normally starts in May and finishes in December. Once cane is harvested new cane is planted or the same roots are used for the next crop. The photos give some idea of how things are done.

 A month old sugarcane

7 to 8 months old  

After 10 months - ready for harvest

Cane being burnt for ease of harvesting (when the farm has not been maintained resulting in the cane getting entangled and growth of weed)

Harvested cane loaded on rail cart

Rail carts transported to the sugar mill


Harvested cane also transported to sugar mill using trucks
