Seminar on Sustainable Sugarcane Practices for Viable Sugar Industry organized

One day Seminar on Sustainable Sugarcane Practices for Viable Sugar Industry was jointly organized by The Sugarcane Technologists’ Association of India (STAI), ICAR-Indian Institute of Sugarcane Research (IISR) and National Federation of Cooperative Sugar Factories Limited (NFCSF) at ICAR-IISR, Lucknow. Inaugurating the Seminar, Sh. Suresh Rana, Hon’ble Minister of Sugarcane Development, Sugar Mills and Industrial Development, Govt. of UP congratulated sugar industry, scientists, development officials and farmers for their sincere and concerted efforts leading to record sugar production during the current crushing season. This year, UP is likely to produce more than 10 million tonnes of sugar. Sh. Rana urged the sugar industry to enhance their crushing capacity to cope up the crushing of increased sugarcane production and dedicate few units for exclusive production of ethanol. Sh. Rana also released one of the STAI Publication “Year Book and Technical Data Directory of Indian Sugar Factories for the year 2015-16 and 2016-17”.

At the outset, welcoming the guests and delegates, Sh. Sanjay Awasthi, President, STAI highlighted the problems of sugar industry like low yield and recovery from sugarcane, high cost of production, depleting soil fertility status, agro-climatic variations, limitations of resources like water, nutrients, quality seeds and scarcity of farm labour impacting its cultivation and harvesting. He highlighted that sugarcane cultivation needs to change radically in order to increase sugarcane yield /recovery to sustainably meet the future demand. Dr. A.D. Pathak, Director, ICAR-IISR, Lucknow highlighted the need of proper crop planning and crop use. He urged the need to regulate bio-ethanol prices for the sustainability of the sugar industry and explained about the future prospects of sugarbeet for bio-ethanol production. Dr. Pathak also informed about the MoU signed with DSCL Sugar to double the income of the sugarcane farmers by 2020-21 in an integrated manner in the eight villages of two districts of Uttar Pradesh. Sh. Prakash Naiknavare, Managing Director, NFCSF informed that about 192 million tonnes of sugar is being produced by 132 countries of the world. Brazil, India, European Union, Thailand and China are the major sugar producing countries of the world. He highlighted that this year, India is likely to record highest ever production of sugar. Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh, together contributes more than 70% to the national sugar production. He also cautioned about the adverse policies of 30 countries which have adverse impact on sugar consumption. He thanked the Govt. for fixing the Minimum Export Quota of two million tonnes of sugar, which will be helpful in improving the financial condition of the Indian sugar industry. Sh. R.L. Tamak, Executive Director, DSCL highlighted the need of fixing Essential Export Quota for sugar. He highlighted the higher sugarcane productivity in Shamli and higher sugar recovery in Bijnore. Sh. Tamak advocated for increasing row to row spacing in sugarcane cultivation in Uttar Pradesh for promoting the mechanized harvesting like Maharashtra and Gujarat, drip irrigation for saving precious water and replacing parchi-wise harvesting by field –wise cane crop harvesting. Sh. Anup Kesarwani, Vice President, STAI proposed the vote of thanks. The Seminar was attended by more than 200 participants.
