Sugarcane Cultivation -


Out of the 16,500 Ha of land under sugarcane cultivation in the entire factory area of the south, Omnicane Agriculture owns and manages some 3,000 hectares of land under sugarcane cultivation and around 2,800 hectares harvested annually, Omnicane produces about 225,000 tonnes of sugarcane yearly. In agriculture, two distinct periods are considered, the crop and intercrop seasons. These occur from June to December, and from January to June respectively. The intercrop season is the period where most of the replantation programmes and field maintenance are carried out. The crop season concerns the harvest and the crushing of cane by Omnicane Milling Operations. Sugar is made in the leaves of the sugarcane plant and is stored as a sweet juice in its fibrous stalks. Once planted, the sugarcane crop remains in the field for about 6 to 7 years. Only 12 % of the sugarcane is replanted yearly. ** Ask for information **
