Is any sugar cane grown in the U.S.?

    Sugar cane is currently grown in the US states of Texas, Louisiana, Florida, and Hawaii.  Although other countries, most notably Brazil, have made sugar cane into an important biofuel crop, the US has yet to use sugar cane as a biofuel on a large scale.  This may change, as at least one study has suggested that converting sugar cane to ethanol would be profitable.  However it is more costly to convert sugar cane to ethanol than it is to convert corn, and this has led to corn receiving much more attention as a biofuel so far.
