New Cane Variety Lifts UP’s Sugar Industry

2018-19 is going to be a landmark sugar season for Uttar Pradesh. Not only is the state set to be India’s top producer for a second successive year, but it will also, for the first time, overtake Maharashtra in sugar recovery from cane. The credit for this goes to the wonder cane variety, Co-0238, developed by Bakshi Ram, director of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research’s Sugarcane Breeding Institute (SBI) at Coimbatore.
