- Sugar Growth
Around 195 countries grow the sugarcane crop to produce around 1.5 billion tones. The world’s largest producer of sugarcane by far is Brazil followed by India. Pakistan is the 5th largest country in the world in terms of area under sugar cane cultivation, 11th by production and 60th by yield. Sugarcane is the primary raw material for the production of sugar. Since independence, the area under cultivation has increased more rapidly than any other major crop. It is one of the major crops in Pakistan cultivated over an area of around one million hectares. It is mainly grown for sugar and sugary production. It is an important source of income and employment for the farming community of the country. It also forms essential items for industries like sugar, chipboard, paper, barrages, confectionery, and use in chemicals, plastics, paints, synthetics, fiber, insecticides and detergents.
The sugar industry in Pakistan is the 2nd largest agriculturally based industry comprising 90 sugar mills with annual crushing capacity of over 65-70 million tonnes. Sugarcane farming and sugar manufacturing contribute significantly to the national exchequer in the form of various taxes and levies.
- Summary of Pakistan
comparative summarized Production of 83 sugar industries of Pakistan operated
in season 2017-18 as reported by Pakistan Sugar Mills Association (PSMA) is as
- Global Production
Global production for Marketing Year (MY) 2018/19 is forecast down 9 million tons to 186 million primarily due to the 8-million-ton drop in Brazil caused by unfavourable weather and more sugarcane being diverted towards ethanol production. Global stocks are forecast to rise to a new high of 53 million metric tons (raw value) as massive stock building in India more than offsets lower stocks in China and the European Union. India’s production is forecast to rise 1.8 million tons to a record 35.9 million due to higher area and yields (in spite of pest and weather concerns).
Pakistan Sugarcane crushing season 2018-2019 appears to be challenging. Pakistan’s production is forecast to be down by 15-25 percent due to reduced area as farmers shifted to other crops such as cotton and corn because of better prices and faster return on their investment. Consumption continues to grow modestly with a developing food processing sector and growing population. Exports and stocks are projected to decline due to the lower production while final levels will depend on government policies.
In December 2018, the Government of Pakistan allowed 1.1-million-ton sugar export. Millers remain unhappy still as the latest export quota is not accompanied by subsidy and Pakistani sugar output remains uncompetitive in global market due to low sucrose recovery rate.
To maximize production, Intensive Cultivation focusing on field economics; reducing the input cost of the crop in comparison with other crops grown in the area.
We Focus on the following:
- Good Quality
- Clients Satisfaction
- Facilitating of the growers with the latest agronomical practices.
