at most production may fall marginally There doesn’t seem to be a sugar cycle any longer” points out Abinash Verma director-general Indian Sugar Mills Association The real question is how long can this state of affairs be sustained For millers and farmers alike the main worry is sugar prices Ex-factory realisations are now around Rs 25/kg in UP and Rs 22/kg in Maharashtra against their corresponding year-ago levels of Rs 30 and Rs 29 respectively Domestic glut apart world prices have also played a part here: Raw sugar futures for July in New York are trading at 1322 cents per pound compared to 1756 cents a year ago and the peak of 3608 cents touched in February 2011 “In 2013-14 I paid a cane price of Rs 2551 per tonne exclusive of harvesting and transport charges more than the Centre’s fair and remunerative price (FRP) of Rs 2378 For the current season I have just been able to pay my FRP of Rs 2512 per tonne” says Madhavrao Ghatge chairman of the Kolhapur-based Shri Gurudatt Sugars that claims to have recorded India’s highest sugar recovery of 1334 per cent this year Many mills in Maharashtra haven’t paid even the FRP Cane price arrears in the state for 2014-15 as on end-March stood at Rs 286450 crore It was even more at Rs 971560 crore for UP Other states with significant cane dues include Karnataka (Rs 240239 crore) Punjab (Rs 68229 crore) Tamil Nadu (Rs 65680 crore) and Bihar (Rs 59811 crore) But for the moment not being paid hasn’t really deterred farmers from planting for the new season For them the alternatives are probably worse In UP cane plantings happen during March to May In Maharashtra it is already over: the 18-month “adsali” cane is planted from mid-June to end-August which is followed by the main “pre-seasonal” crop (mid-September to end-October) and the relatively small “suru” cane (January-March) “Cane area is almost the same except in Marathwada where there has been a drop because of drought conditions” according to MG Joshi managing director National Federation of Cooperative Sugar Factories For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsRinku Joshi, Marrow, ? reveals Ferreira.
