Notes on the Geography of Fiji: Fiji: Photo 22
Most of the crop was grown on the drier north side of the island; the south side was too wet--a lesson learned the hard way--but the north side was wet enough that irrigation wasn't needed. It was a try-and-try-again process, including several refineries, most of which closed but four of which continue to operate today (including the biggest, at Lautoka, north of Nadi). Production is on a slowly declining path, but in 2015 the island produced about two million tons of cane. For the Indians who never escaped sugar, Fiji is a long way from the tourist's destination.
