sugar cane farm

sugar cane farm / plantation and agricultural landscape

Sugar cane farm D346 - Sugar cane, which, in reality, is only a gigantic species of grass, is a major agricultural crop in many areas of Queensland and Western Australia. The Australian industry continually faces stiff competition from other sugar producing countries, such as the USA and Brazil, with prices farmers receive for their crops fluctuating dramatically from year to year. This scene is of fields near the Queensland coastal city of Bundaberg and the rural town of Gin Gin, where the  landscape is dominated by emerald swathes of sugar cane, and the economy of rural communities is tied to the wealth generated by agriculture.
