Sugar Cane Tradition

Landscape - Baie-Mahault

The sugar cane basin of northern Basse-Terre contains over one third of the cultivated land in Guadeloupe (3,300 out of 12,000 hectares). As is the case in other communes of the region, its importance to the economic, social, and cultural life of Baie-Mahault remains great. Like growers elsewhere in the department, the farmers of Baie-Mahault have taken the initiative to preserve their production facilities, while also taking an active interest in new uses for sugar derivatives, in particular “bagasse” (sugar plant residue), which can be used to produce fertilizer, animal feed, energy, and more.
