Batey 50, Dominican Republic- After Cuba, the Dominican Republic is the second-largest Caribbean producer of sugarcane, the nation's most important crop. The State Sugar Council operates 12 sugar mills and accounts for about half of total production. Other large producers are the privately owned Vicini, with three mills, and Central Romana Corporation, whose mill is the largest in the country. A USDA estimate put US consumption of sugar at approximately 80 lbs per person, of which cane accounts for 80% of sugar produced. (Photo by Robert Falcetti)
