Abstract:
India is the largest producer and consumer of sugar in the World. About 45 million sugarcane farmers, their dependents and a large agricultural force, constituting 7.5 percent of the rural population, are involved in sugarcane cultivation, harvesting and ancillary activities. This enabled India to become the largest producer of sugarcane and sugar in the world leaving the other major producers Brazil and Cuba.1 The major sugarcane crop growing states in India are Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Assam, Haryana, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The sugarcane cultivation and sugar industry in India plays a vital role towards socio-economic development in the rural areas by mobilizing rural resources and generating higher income and employment opportunities. The major problem of sugarcane in India is based on monsoon and water supply. The cyclical nature in sugar production has caused distortions in the export of sugar in India. This study analyzes the state-wise production and reasons for the changes in production of sugarcane. Agro-based industries have been playing a crucial role in Indian economy. About 7.5% of the rural population, covering about 60 million cane farmers, their dependents and a large number of agricultural labor are involved in sugarcane cultivation, harvesting and ancillary activities. Additionally, the country is said to have had 503 operating sugar factories / mills that generate employment for over 50 million people as of 2011-12.
