The Sweet Taste of Success
Sugarcane, a kharif crop, is produced in large quantities in India. As per the economic survey 2021-22, India is the largest consumer and the second-largest producer of sugar in the world. Average annual production of sugarcane is around 35.5 crore tonnes, which is used to produce around 3 crore tonnes of sugar. The capacity for manufacturing sugar is distributed roughly equally between private sector units and cooperative sector units.
The sugar industry, being an agro-based industry in India, is responsible for creating a far-reaching impact on the rural economy, thereby influencing the country’s economy as a whole. The expansion and development of the industry creates employment opportunities and growth prospects for not only the farmers of the territory, but also in allied and ancillary industries like harvesting, transport, trade, servicing and maintenance of machinery, and supply of agriculture inputs.
