Sugar Cane Empire

 Sugar cane, growing above, covers vast areas of inland Florida south of Lake Okeechobee and north of the Everglades.  Cane trucks below ferry a constant supply to the large processing factory, second photo below.

 The land and business is owned by the Fanjul family, which operates Domino sugar.  Here is more info:

The landscape is unrelenting across much of the area:  no shade and only sugar cane fields.  Industrial agriculture.
