History of Sugarcane in Louisiana
Sugarcane has been an integral part of the south Louisiana economy and culture for more than 200 years. When Jesuit priests first brought sugarcane into south Louisiana in 1751, little did they know that the foundation was being laid for an industry that now contributes $2 billion to the Louisiana economy.
2015 Sugarcane Farm Costs and Returns Model
2015 Projected Sugarcane Production Farm Costs and Returns Model
The 2015 Projected Sugarcane Farm Costs and Returns Model was developed as a farm planning decision tool for Louisiana sugarcane growers. The model is an Excel spreadsheet that allows sugarcane producers to project sugarcane net returns for the coming year and to evaluate the impact of changes in yields, sugar prices, input prices and other factors on whole farm net returns and breakeven values.
2013 Sugarcane Farm Costs and Returns Model
2013 Projected Sugarcane Production Farm Costs and Returns Model
The 2013 Projected Sugarcane Farm Costs and Returns Model was developed as a farm planning decision tool for Louisiana sugarcane growers. The model is an Excel spreadsheet that allows sugarcane producers to project sugarcane net returns for the coming year and to evaluate the impact of changes in yields, sugar prices, input prices and other factors on whole farm net returns and breakeven values.

2011 Sugarcane Crop Cycle Length Evaluation Model
2011 Sugarcane Crop Cycle Length Evaluation Model
The 2011 Sugarcane Crop Cycle Length Evaluation Model, an Excel spreadsheet-based producer decision tool, was developed to assist sugarcane producers in evaluating the optimal crop cycle length for various tracts of sugarcane produced on farms in Louisiana. Costs and returns are compared for sugarcane crop cycles through harvest of second and third stubble sugarcane crops.
