  • Simba said on October 14, 2010
    Sugarcane farming can be complex and returns are linked to multiple factors. In Africa, infrastructure bottlenecks are proving to be the most critical of constraints. Egypt, South Africa, Mauritius seem to be saturated markets. The best opportunities from a cost perspective are in Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Surprisingly,South East Zimbabwe is probably the best place to grow sugarcane. This due to the existing road and rail infrastructure, climate (9 month harvesting season) and soils. However, the political climate in the country is still uncertain. Interestingly enough, the political issues haven't deterred South Africa's largest Sugar Company Tongaat Hulett and the European Union from investing well over USD100 mm in 2009 and 2010 alone in the industry there. Mozambique has also been an investment destination for sugar mills, ethanol plants and co-gen projects, unfortunately the sugar cane yields TPH(84 tonnes per hectare) have not been as competitive as Zimbabwe TPH(120 tonnes per hectare. Mozambique, however provides great tax incentives which make it worthwhile.

    having been into sugarcane is not easy, there is a lot of things to consider. the area where you want to plant, the weather condition and the way to where it can be delivered. You must also need a lot of laborers in order to work in your sugar cane plantation, the area much better if it is flat because the fertilizers that you applied will go directly into the plant and cannot be drift away by rain. according to different organization in a milling company here in the philippines, sugar cane price will be high upto 2015 or more.

  • Raghunath expert adviser said on April 4, 2011

    @Rajwadi Selvin, HI Rajwadi, Growing sugarcane is a brilliant idea. It is very easy to grow, it can grow upto 4 meter height. You can farm it using seeds but modern stem cutting method is the best process to grow sugarcane. It can harvest by both the process like with hand or by using machines. Hand harvesting process is more popular all over the world, in this process the field should be set on fire first. The fire burns dry leaves, and kills any lurking venomous snakes, without harming the stalks and roots and Mechanical harvesting uses a combine, or chopper harvester.

    Nick,as mentioned by Laurence sugarcane farming cost 25k/ha. more or less if it is succeeding crop(ratoon) but in newly plant(1st crop) will cost 35k/ha. more or less.If you consider 100has. to start, that is a huge capital investment that require equipment like tractors & implements, staffs (overseer, officers, mechanics, etc),higher overhead cost if you are operating a bigger area but you can have a higher potential profit. Re planting time, we have different HIV (high yield varieties) now suited for both dry & rainy months. Cane points are available anywhere in VMC area at cheaper cost (compared to early 20's). Presently, I am here in KSA (as aquaculture technician) to save fund since I am planning also to invest/leased some area by 2012/2013. I have trucks before (personal trucking business) hauled from Murcia to Cadiz areas & I am very familiar with these areas especially in Victorias. Most of my families (parents & grands)were engaged in hacienda management (encargados)and I have more idea with this business. I am very willing to help you (maybe a business partner in the future).

    Sugarcane cultivation requires a tropical or temperate climate, with a minimum of 60 centimeters (24 in) of annual moisture. It is one of the most efficient photo-synthesizers in the plant kingdom. It is a C4 plant, able to convert up to one percent of incident solar energy into biomass.In prime growing regions, such as Puerto Rico, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Peru, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Australia, Ecuador, Cuba, the Philippines, El Salvador and Hawaii, sugarcane can produce 20 lb (9 kg) for each square meter exposed to the sun.

  • Gene said on February 1, 2012
    Im 4th generation in sugar farming. My tips on people who wants to be a cane producer.
    1. Find out where you can mill your canes
    2. During milling season there is what they call a weekly bidding (A.B.D and your molasses} its like playing stock market if you want to bid your canes or hold for a better price.
    3. For me this is the most important find out if its fertile soil. This will play a big role how much 18-46, Urea and Potash you need to apply per Ha. to get the maximum tonnage and pstc.
    4. your labor cost to cultivate the land and of course who will cultivate it.
    5. your milling cost who will cut the canes and how much they will charge per ton, your hauling of canes to the mills is there rail available or you need to get a truck. There is many factors on cane growing it would take pages to explain. bottom line is its a great business to be in with high profits if you cultivate it correctly. But to make it good (This is just my opinion). A farmer needs to start at least 15 Ha. because the amount of money you put in on the land and your labor cost it would be difficult to recoup your investments in short period of time unless you plan to make muscovado sugar or cane juices out of your cane. Hope this helps

    hi i'm nathaniel from bacolod city negros accidental, at present i have a venture of 20 hect. located in murcia and bago city , sugarcane farming is a very profitable business as long as you cultivate it properly, in one hectare of land you need 70,000 of seedlings. it will take 9 to 12 months depending on sugarcane varieties. tonnage also is dependent with the cane variety and how you cultivate but with a good sugar cane you can have 60 to 100 tons per hectare. sugarcane is not so sensitive as long as you apply the necessary fertilizers and plowing in correct timing rats are common predators of sugarcane , also need to clear the grass and weeds when the canes are still 1 to 5 months. next year we will be expanding with our venture we will add 30 hectares more . those who are interested we have many contact in murcia area only to those located in negros occidental philippines , the lease for one year is ranging from 12,000 to 15,000 per hectare. email me (

  • nathaniel l. dulaca beginner adviser said on August 25, 2012
    calculation for sugarcane
    purissa: sweetness of your cane, to be tested by the milling company. net tonnage : tonnage of your canes deducted the expenses
    purissa : 1.9 per ton
    net tonnage: 60 tons
    purissa x net tonnage= bags of sugar
    1.9x60= 114 bags of sugar
    current price of raw sugar last july 1690 pesos per bag
    114 x 1690 = 192,622 pesos
    there are also some incentives with the molasses and trucking allowance, swapping, you need to ask your association with these.
