Summary

Editorial RISE IN SUGAR PRICES The Government of India have in a communication to the Indian Sugar Mills Association Calcutta referred to the recent rise in the sugar prices in the country and have asked the Association to inform them about the action proposed to be taken by the Association in this connection. [...] the stocks of sugar with factories were also the highest in the history of the sugar industry and that even after allowing a larger off-take this year due to short production of gur and khandsari and poor stocks with the trade in the beginning of the season the total off-take may not exceed 15 lakh tons. [...] The Committee also expressed their concern at the high sugar prices prevailing in the North Western Markets of the country especially in the Punjab and pointed out that the high prices ruling there according to reports was mainly due to smuggling across the border and that the above fact had already been brought to the notice of the Government for their taking necessary action. [...] If it were a study of the quality of cane that can be obtained in the various regions a study of the cane quality during the resptetive periods of peak maturity would be the criterion but from the point of view of sugar production we are concerned with the quality of cane as is received for crushing in the different regions during the whole season i.e. [...] QUALITY FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF RECOVERY As pointed out earlier the manufacturer is interested in the recovery of sugar from the cane he handles and as such he is interested to know what the net effect of the changes in the cane quality would be on the recovery.
