There are wide spread apprehensions that India’s sugar production might fall in 2019-20 as farmers are struggling to plant cane, thanks to a drought like situation in two of the country’s top sugar cane producing states. If it so happens, the drop in production would not only slash exports from the world’s second-biggest sugar producer, it would also support global prices that have fallen nearly 15 per cent so far in 2018. Interestingly, around mid-2018, it was expected that sugar output in India would reach a record level as timely showers helped boost yields in the world’s top consumer. Around April-May, 2018, Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA) expected that production may total 31.5 million metric tonne in the year that began on October 1, against 29.5 million tonne, as estimated in March, 2018 and the previous record of 28.36 million tonne in 2006-07. That’s not all. Analysts had thought at that time (April-May, 2018) that a bigger harvest in the world’s second-largest producer might further ...
