2. Good Outlook For Sugar Season 2022-2023
Despite unseasonal rains in October 2022, management has maintained a good outlook for the sugar season with production volumes expected to touch FY2020 levels, driven by a 7-8% increase in the area under cultivation, enhanced cane-development activities to reduce the risk of pest attacks, and increased mix of high-yield variety of sugar.
