[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sugarcane refers to any of 6 to 37 species (depending on which taxonomic system is used) of tall perennial grasses of the genus Saccharum (family Poaceae, tribe Andropogoneae). Native to warm temperate to tropical regions of Asia, they have stout, jointed, fibrous stalks that are rich in sugar, and measure two to six meters (six to nineteen feet) tall. All sugar cane species interbreed, and the major commercial cultivars are complex hybrids.
Sugar cane products include table sugar, falernum, molasses, rum, cachaša (the national spirit of Brazil), bagasse and ethanol.

Sugar refining is Durban's main industry.
