I live in the middle of sugarcane country here in Louisiana (we just had the
 sugarcane festival in New Iberia).   USL in Lafayette, Louisiana has an
 experimental cane farm and they do extensive research.

The university phone # is 318-482-1000.  They will connect you with the
 agricultural college.
If you want to write to them, the university address is 104 University Circle,
 Lafayette, LA
