Avery Davidson of This Week in Louisiana Agriculture filed this story on the LSU Ag Leadership class’s visit to Thailand. Here’s the lede to the video story:
In 2019, the Thai sugar industry produced 14 million metric tons of refined sugar — that’s almost equal to how much refined sugar came from Louisiana in 2018. With so much in common, it just made sense for the LSU Ag Leadership class to see the practices of sugarcane farmers here in Thailand. TWILA’s Avery Davidson shows us why this was a very sweet spot on the tour.
