Crop loot-OS This crop was har
vested from 6.C32.28 acres which
yielded 14.508.133S tons of sugar.
As stated In my report of a year
ago ,a very small percentage of this
croi was harvested from plant cano.
Owing to tho dry weather at tho be
ginning of tho year, wo did not get a
good start with the grinding until tho
first or April, which kept our mill
work back considerably.
Crof 1905-00 This crop will bo bar
vested from 2,155.00 acres plant cano
and 2,087.32 acres of rattoons.
Total 4,242.38 acres.
Thero Is about 185.98 acres of cano
to harvest at Puna, of which 1C5.0S
acres Is plant cane.
t Tbe total yield. Including Puna, I
estimate at 11.500 tons of sugar.
Crop 1906-07: For this crop we
have 1958.2 acres of rattoons and 2674.3
acres of plant cane to harvest, arid In
addition to tho above there will be be
tween three and four hundred acres of
ratoons to harvest at Puna.
Most of the planting on Olna has
been done with Vol low Caledonia cane,
excepting on the extreme upper lanus,
which have been planted with Hose
So far tbe leaf-hopper has done little
os no damage to the cane for this crop.
Crop 1907-08: I hope to be able to
plow and plant about 2200 ncrea to-
this crop, and thero will bo about 2000
acres of ratoons.
