Caption: Harvesting sugar cane (Saccharum officinarum). The stems of the sugar cane are being chopped down and deposited into a mechanised container. The roots are left alone, so that the crop can re-grow. Sugar cane is a bamboo-like tropical grass grown to make sugar (sucrose). Photographed in Barbados.
