ISMA raises 2012-13 sugar production estimate to 24.3 MT
However, sugar production will still be lower than the 26 million tonne achieved in 2011-12 but sufficient to meet the domestic demand of 22 million tonne.
At the beginning of the current marketing year, ISMA had pegged sugar production at 24 million tonne. As per revised estimates, production in Uttar Pradesh, Maharasthra and Karnataka, is estimated to rise marginally to 8.1 million tonne, 6.8 million tonne and 3.2 million tonne, respectively this year.
