A cane harvester, which also goes by the name of a sugarcane harvester, is a large agricultural piece of machinery. It was first introduced to the market in the nineteen twenties and has remained largely unchanged since then. It serves multiple functions when harvesting sugarcane. Firstly, it cuts the sugarcane at the bottom of the plant stalk; it then cuts it into multiple pieces and stores them in its back compartment. The sugarcane harvester also shoots out back into the field any unused parts of the sugarcane to act as fertilizer for the soil and field for the next crop.
