Sugar cane harvesting performed manually in Philippine province

Manila, Philippines (4E) – Sugar cane harvesting is still done manually in the Philippines. In a scene at a sugar cane plantation in Tarlac province in northern Philippines, workers are distinguished by the heavy covering of their bodies to protect their skin from getting cut while cutting sugar cane stalks.

Cut sugar canes are then carried and loaded into trucks that bring the crop to the sugar refinery also located in the province. Vintage World War II trucks are still being used for hauling sugar cane from plantations to sugar refinery.
