: Many of the sugar producing countries in Region 1 are new to harvesting mechanization. Their traditional field cultural practices that are sufficient for manual harvesting will create numerous problems as they transition to mechanical harvesting. While row spacing, row profile, row length, headland width, and obstacle removal seem to be easily acted upon to suit mechanization, decades of tradition stand directly in front of progress. Even researchers in these markets can be difficult to convince. Their studies have shown that traditional methods are optimal for local conditions. Since they have not been involved in research that considers crop-machinery interaction, they are not quickly convinced that change will optimize production in the new paradigm. One method for overcoming traditional beliefs is to get a few machines in the market and let the growers and local researchers learn to adapt. This, however, is a slow process that can take decades. Another, more accelerated method is to bring growers and researchers in the local market together with experts from markets that are mechanized or those that are currently making the change from hand labor to mechanization. This is by far the quickest way to get local buy-in for moving to cultural practices that are conducive to mechanical harvesting.
