Kolhapur: The central government is likely to take a decision on banning sugar exports from June 1. If such a decision is taken, it will be a blow to the sugarcane growers and the sugar industry, said Raju Shetti, president of Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana. Speaking on the occasion, Shetty said that the central government has banned the export of wheat in the ongoing backdrop between Russia and Ukraine. Its blow has fallen on wheat growers. But today onion is being procured from farmers at the rate of Rs. 1 per kg. There is no time to pay attention to it. There is talk of banning sugar exports. In Maharashtra, thousands of acres of sugarcane are still lying without sifting. Farmers are committing suicide as sugarcane is not being sifted.
This year there will be a record production of sugar. Last year’s sugar balance was 85 lakh tonnes. This year, 355 lakh tonnes of sugar has been produced. Out of 440 lakh tonnes of sugar, the country needs 280 lakh tonnes of sugar. 8 million tons have been exported. At present, the country has a surplus of 8 million tonnes of sugar. Next year too there will be record production of sugar. Next year too, 110 lakh tonnes of sugar will have to be exported. If there is no export, then the question of what to do with the surplus sugar will arise before the sugar industry, Shetty added. Failure to reach an agreement in the international market for next year’s exports would have a serious impact on the sugar industry. Therefore, this decision of the central government is very foolish and is putting the country’s sugar industry in a rut. In the Krishi Bhavan in Delhi, very wise people should take this decision with this in mind. The Center should take a decision in the interest of the farmers and immediately implement the policy of sugar export, otherwise the farmers and the sugar industry in the country will not survive without going into a ditch.
