Sugar production is likely to fall in the 2022-23 season.

As per the market sources, sugar production in India is likely to fall due to erratic weather. Poor yield has been reported from key sugar-growing belts. Around 15% drop in cane yields has been reported from Maharashtra. As per market sources, sugar production in Maharashtra is likely to fall from the expected 13.8 million tonnes to 11.7 million tonnes. In Karnataka too the erratic weather had affected the cane yields. Karnataka’s sugar production is expected to fall to 5.5 million tonne from 6 million tonne last year. As a result, overall sugar production is expected to fall to 33.3 million tonne from the previous season 35.8 million tonnes.

Agriwatch estimates a lower sugar recovery from Uttar Pradesh also, due to poor weather during the sowing period. We estimate overall sugar production in India to be 34.8 million tonne.
