Harvesting Sugarcane in the Florida Everglades. The Johnson's and Nessman's spent a day touring a lettuce and sugarcane farm. The Sugarcane burn was hot and intense. Do you know where your lettuce comes from? A mountain of sugar twice the size of our largest farm shed!! #holdontoyoursunburn

Zach Johnson, the “Millennial Farmer” is a 5th-generation farmer who’s spent his life growing, working, and learning on his family’s farm. His wit and dry sense of humor appeal to children and adults alike. A product of the millennial generation, his appreciation of new technology blends with his old-fashioned work ethic, and he offers a unique ability to deliver his message in a way that resonates with lifelong farmers as well as those with no knowledge of agriculture.
With growing consumer awareness about where their food comes from, Zach has identified the need for an independent voice from the front lines of agriculture. Zach actively promotes agriculture by sharing his day-to-day experiences in the agriculture world while providing farmer-to-farmer education to help facilitate a collaborative conversation between farmers and the public.

Great content Zach. Keep 'em coming and your channel will grow. I also watch Rice Farming TV. I don't farm, but I source my pork, beef, eggs, and dairy direct from local farms. There are a lot of people out there who want to know where their food comes from. Most of us are aware at some level that if you don't farm, we don't eat. Thank you and blessings for keeping food on my table!

I knew sugar production caused a lot of toxic fertilizer and pesticide/herbicide runoff, and the product produces lots of disease in humans, like diabetes and its complications, but I forgot it gives us lots of air pollution too! Loved the video though! Thanks!

Can’t sugar cane silage be processed into ethanol?
CuriousEarthMan 7 kun oldin
it's technically possible. not sure if it is profitable. removing the sugar/cane juice from the cane first is probably the best way to go. still not sure if you'd make money though.

Absolutely great video… I was in Louisiana and see how they did sugarcane there but it’s not near the same level of production line. If you ever get a chance be sure and go through the sugar plant with a grocery and boil it down

I know a lot of local farms since I have lives here almost 30 years. Keep up the awesome content and looking forward to playing your FS19 map when it's released.

Florida East Coast Railway interchanges with U.S. Sugar Corporation's Railroad in Ft. Pierce, Florida and they haul out Granulated Sugar from those mills in Food Grade Covered Hoppers that go to other Refineries. One being Imperial Sugar Corporation in Savannah, Georgia that makes "Dixie Crystals Sugar" that I grew up with! Another fact for you. We haul it at CSX Transportation Inc where I work too and along with Florida East Coast Railway that I hope to work for soon hauls Tropicana Jucie Trains from Fort Pierce, Florida on the FEC and the plant in Bradenton, Florida on CSX that all come together in Jacksonville to be shipped to Cincinnati, Ohio on CSX, Jersey City, New Jersey on CSX, and Los Angeles, California by CSX to New Orleans, Louisiana and handed off to Union Pacific Railroad from New Orleans to Los Angeles!

One thing I love about it here in South Florida is the United States Sugar Corporation and their Railroad also called the South Central Florida Express, their Sugar Mills and Railroad Shops in Clewiston, Florida and the fact that Sugar cane is hauled by rail with this company as well as by Rigs! Domino Sugar and others are there too! Sugar Cane farming and harvesting is awesome! 🇺🇸🚂

Hope you enjoyed your trip to Florida. Everglades Equipment Group is one of the largest dealers in the world. You hooked up with the best. We live about 30 or 40 miles north of belle glade. I have a John Deere garden tractor (E110) yeah they make em that small. Actually a riding lawn mower to deal with my 1/4 acre "farm". Make no mistake, alligators are everywhere. Rule of thumb, if there's water, there's a gator. Our city hall has a water retention pond in front of it. There's at least one gator in there. Don't worry about the gater you can see. Worry about the one you can't see. How'd you like that black fertile soil?

Here in South Africa they do most of sugarcane harvesting by hand because the hills are so steep. On a relatives farm they don't burn the sugarcane so there's trash to keep the moisture in the sandy soils and avoid erosion

You should see how Australia does sugarcane harvesting (June to December) and planting (March/April autumn plant and September to November spring plant). Where I work, we just planted 52 hectares or 128 acres in 4 days with 6 workers (including a breakdown). One, harvester, 4 haulouts and 2 for the planter. I prefer blue and red intercase. Good video
