Our Agricultural Department have compiled these notes to give new cane growers an overview of the NSW industry, some issues pertinent to the NSW situation and cane growing practices.

There are numerous publications (Manual of Cane Growing, 2000; Soil-specific Nutrient Management Guidelines for Sugarcane Production in New South Wales, 2013; SRA Weed Management Manual, 2021) that give detailed information about all aspects of cane production some of which has been adapted to the NSW situation.
