Government expects sugar output to be around 25 MT in 2017-18

The country's overall sugar output is expected to be around 25 million tonnes (MT) in 2017-18 marketing year on account of likely higher output in Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra following good rains. This is an initial projection based on the inputs of the state governments. The estimate, however, is in line with the industry body ISMA's projection.

This is a jump of about 24% compared to the estimated output in the ongoing 2016-17 marketing year (October-September) of about 20.2 MT because of poor rains.

The Uttar Pradesh government has submitted sugar output to be 10.2 MT in the 2017-18 marketing year, higher than 8.77 MT to be achieved this year. In case of Maharashtra, the state expects sugar output in the range of 6.8-7.4 MT in 2017-18, as against 3.24 MT this year due to good rains.
