Description: 
Sugar cane - bananas and a huge red petioled palm - with leaf like a huge oil palm. These bottom lands are very fertile - but the rest is difficult because although the rain is sufficient to support a rather heavy vegetation the drought period is so long and severe that production during this period is out of the question.
