Intensive cane development work done in the last years the Company achieved higher cane crush by 39.75 lakh Qtls and higher recovery by 0.36% over the previous year. With gradual acceptance of sugarcane variety Co-0238 by the farmers of the area, the cane production throughout the State gradually increased, resulted in excess sugar production leading to a steep decline in current sugar prices as compared to last year.
