2022 SUGAR CANE HARVEST SEASON

NAPOLEONVILLE – Sheriff Leland Falcon would like to remind everyone that the 2022 sugar cane harvest season gets underway on Monday, September 26, 2022.

Both parish mills are expected to begin operation on that day.

Based on the crop in the fields, the harvest season is expected to continue for at least 90 days. The mills are expected to process approximately 2.1 million tons of cane which equates to 76,000 truck loads or 840 loads each day that will be traversing our roadways, 7 days a week until the process is completed.

Adverse weather conditions and fog can make our roadways a bit more hazardous during the season. The motoring public should take extra precaution while driving and be wary of the cane haulers and other equipment that will be utilizing the parish roadways.

As a side note, we continue to experience ATVs and other off-road vehicles utilizing the cane field headlands for pleasure. We urge everyone to stay out of the cane fields with these vehicles as to avoid traffic and unnecessary accidents.

The farming industry employs many of our local residents and this grinding season is expected to produce 500 million pounds of sugar.

Let’s all do our part to make this a safe harvest season.
