Sugar production till November 30, 2018 in the current sugar season (SS) 2018-19 was 39.73 lakh tonne, according to a press release issued by ISMA (the Indian Sugar Mills Association). It was 39.14 lakh tonne on November 30, 2017. As compared to 450 sugar factories, which were crushing sugarcane last year on November 30, 2017, 415 sugar mills were crushing sugarcane on November 30, 2018 this year.

In Maharashtra, 167 sugar mills have started crushing operations, and are running in full swing.  As on November 30, 2018, these mills produced 18.05 lakh tonne, 21 per cent higher than the sugar production on the same date last year.

At the end of November 2017, 108 sugar mills were crushing in Uttar Pradesh, who had produced 13.11 lakh tonne. Sugar production this year is slow as compared to last year, because in the current season, sugar mills had a delayed start of crushing by a fortnight or so.

In the state of Karnataka, 63 sugar mills were crushing on November 30, 2018, and 7.93 lakh tonne of sugar was produced. As compared to this, as on November 30, 2017, 62 sugar mills were operating this time, and had produced 7.02 lakh tonne of sugar.
