About Egypt Sugarcane

Sugarcane harvesting in Africa
Sugarcane harvesting in Africa
Upper Egypt economy is heavily dependent on sugarcane production. Sugarcane or Cane is widely cultivated in tropical and temperate regions like Upper Egypt where, like most anything else Egyptian farmers grow, it is planted on the narrow strip of land along the banks of the Nile. It is planted in the spring and autumn seasons. Spring planting occurs in February and March, while autumn planting extends from September through October. The cane crop takes 11 to 12 months to grow. The Egyptian government’s policy of encouraging farmers to grow beets over sugar cane as a water saving measure has been ineffective, because of an attractive supply price offered by the government, making it the cash crop of choice in Upper Egypt. In Egypt, there are 14 sugar processors, seven processing sugar cane, six processing sugar beet and one processing both. All seven sugar cane processors and the one sugar cane and beet processor are state-run companies affiliated with Ministry of Supply and Industrial Trade’s (MoSIT) Holding Company for Food Industries (HCFI). Of the six sugar beet processors, two are private sector and the rest are state-run companies.
