Indian-Commodity  :  Commodities  :  Sugar  :  Sugar production falls by 19% to 162.45 LT during Oct-Feb period

Sugar production falls by 19% to 162.45 LT during Oct-Feb period (06-Mar-2017)

The production of sugar declined by 19% during the current 2016-17 SS which began on October 1, 2016 and till February 28, 2017. As per data compiled by The Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA) the production stood at 162.45 lakh tonnes (LT) compared with production of 199.43 LT during the corresponding period of the previous year. As on February 28, 2017, 257 sugar mills are continuing their crushing operations, whereas in 2015-16 SS, 390 mills were in operation on the same date.

In state of Uttar Pradesh, 107 mills are still continuing their operations.  As on February 28, 2017, sugar mills have produced 62.46 LT of sugar, which is 17% higher as compared to last year's sugar production of 53.51 LT on the corresponding period.  On February 28, 2016, 102 sugar mills were in operation last year.

Out of 153 sugar mills which had started crushing this season in Maharashtra, 136 mills have stopped crushing and 17 are still working. Till February 28, 2017, mills have produced 41.15 LT of sugar, as compared to 70.58 LT produced last year on the corresponding period. In 2015-16 SS, 102 mills were in operation as on February 28, 2016.

The drought in Southern and Western part of the country during the last two years has majorly impacted sugarcane production, including yields per hectare, in these regions. This has been the major contributor towards substantially lower sugar production in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Gujarat also seems to have been affected, though to a lower extent, as compared to the other States in this region.
