Since 1990.
People from Latin America , the Caribbean and other regions, including Africa and Asia.

EARTH UNIVERSITY curriculum is based on four formative areas designed to prepare students with the competencies required to respond to needs of today world. These include:

Technical and Scientific knowledge
personal development, attitudes and values
Ethical entrepreneurship
Social and environmental awareness and commitment.
Tropical Crops
Operation of Agricultural Equipment.
Business Project.
First year
A Collaborative EARTH Internship in South Florida EAA.
Management and soil conservation.
Tropical Foresty
Business project (Closing)
Internship preparation.


Graduation project.
Irrigation and drainage
Professional Experience
Our educationl approach is based on two principals:
Student centered learning:
Students, alone or in groups, explore real challenges and become active participants in generating knowledge, as opposed to passive receptors of information.
Experiential learning:
Students learn through deliberate experiences designed to encourage learning and are given opportunities to build knowledge and develop abilities which they can put into practice while they are learning.

Innovation - Technology

Create a 1 acre grid of the field using the precision Earth program or Crop track program.
Sampling is in the middle of the each grid.
11 samples within the grids are taken at a depth of about 6 inches the samples are then mixed together for that one grid and placed into a labeled bag.
After all samples are taken in all grids, they are sent to a soil lab to be analyzed for nutrients such as phosphorus.

Before Planting - Soil sample
Automatic pumps

- GPS, A B Line. before of preparing the field.

Select Sugar Cane Cultivars
Some of the factor to consider when selecting cultivars to plant on their farm are:
Soil type
Water Control
Level of fertility of the land
The potential for freezing conditions in the winter and disease pressure.

More than 27 cultivars planted by Cooperative growers, there are three that comprise 86.5 per cent of the 2004 -2005 sugarcane crop.

CP 80 -1743
CP89- 2143
CP 88-1762
Sugarcane, a giant grass belonging to the genus Saccharum, grows to about 10- 20 feet tall and matures in 12-15 months. Commercial sugarcane is planted from cuttings of the sugarcane stalk. These seed pieces are placed in shallow furrows five feet apart and covered with soil. After harvesting the plant sprouts successive crops of stems called ``ratoon``. Three to five crops are normally obtained from each initial planting.
Prior to entering the field to harvest the crop, the fields are individually burned.
Farmers can only burn when climatic condition permit. Once the field has been burned, it is ready for harvest.
To calculate fiber in Cane.
- Shredded cane
-Weighed out roughly 750g of fiber and placed into cloth bags.
- Soaked samples in water for an hout to remove excess sugar.
-washed samples in a washing to further remove excess sugar.
used hydraulic press to extract liquid from samples.
- Brix liquid todetermine if sugar was removed
-If sugar was not removed, samples were weighed, and then placed into a drying oven.
-Samples were dried for several days.
-final weight of samples were gotten and fiber was calculated from weight changes.
The mechanical harvesters are single row harvesters, that cut the sugarcane at the base of the stalk, remove the excess foliage, cut the cane into billets and then load the cane into in field wagons.
-Crush cane in mill to extract the juice.
- Samples are ran through a Foss NIR to calculate brix and Pol.
-Brix and Pol is then used in a equation to calculate sucrose within the sample.
- If sample does not calibrate, wet chemistry is used.
-Wet chemistry is completed by using a refractometer and polimeter.
- A small sample is place in the refractometer to calculate brix.
- 150ml of juice is clarified using octapol before running through the polimeter
- Clarifying always light to penetrate the juice sample to get an accurate Pol.
Irrigation: Automatic pumps, controlling the water level of the canals, for the soil moisture at field capacity.
humidity level: 7.5 -8.0
low water level : 6.5- 7.0
