[cultivated] for vs with

Seemingly, the phrase "cultivated _with_ sugar" is synonymous with the phrase "cultivated _for_ sugar".

EXAMPLE:
Hence it is obvious, that the profit on such part of these lands as may be cultivated _with_ sugar, cannot be estimated separately from the profit on the whole collectively.

QUESTION:
Do you think the "cultivated with" version is a legitimate English expression in this case?
If your answer is YES, may I hear your view regarding the rationale for the use of the preposition "with"?

Thank you for your attention.
