Sugarcane

Climate zone: Tropical – Dry – Temperate – Continental – Polar 

Sugarcane or simply cane, are several species of tall perennial grasses, used for sugar production. The plant is two to six metres (six to twenty feet) tall. It has stout, jointed, fibrous stalks that are rich in sucrose, which accumulates in the stalk internodes. Sugarcane belongs to the grass family Poaceae, an economically important seed plant family that includes maize, wheat, rice, and sourghum, and many forage crops. It is native to the warm temperate to tropical regions of Southeast Asia and New Guinea.
