Short summary
Brazil is the largest sugarcane producer. Sugarcane in Brazil can be harvested all year round. The flexible phenology makes it difficult to identify sugarcane in Brazil at a country scale. We developed a phenology-based method which can identify sugarcane with limited training data. The sugarcane maps for Brazil obtain high accuracy through comparison against field samples and statistical data. The maps can be used to monitor growing conditions and evaluate the feedback to climate of sugarcane.
