Cane Farming

Bundaberg Sugar is one of the largest cane growers in Australia and owns more than 8,000 hectares of cane farms, which produce nearly 550,000 tonnes of cane per year.

In the Bundaberg area where rainfall is variable, extensive irrigation systems are utilised.

Each season, which typically runs from June through to November, Bundaberg Sugar's mills crush approximately 1.5 million tonnes of cane which is harvested from 20,000 hectares.
