Sugar Cane

Why Irrigate?

From establishment to ripening, proper irrigation is important at each stage of sugar cane growth. At Lindsay, we take into account many factors, such as local microclimate, soil type and elevation when designing proper irrigation systems to meet your particular needs. The right amount of water at the right time is critical both for yield and for greater amounts of sucrose. Over watering can decrease yield as can water deficit.
