Sugarcane is a significant cash crop for Pakistan. With being a dependable source of income, the sector is also providing employment opportunities for the masses. India, with similar climatic conditions, is obtaining about 53 per cent higher cane yield than Pakistan.

Irfan Khokhar, a sugarcane grower told APP (Associated Press of Pakistan) that Pakistan’s ranking in top 10 and ahead of some of the most developed countries shows that amid dire circumstances and dissatisfaction among the producers, the farmers here are industrious. They are managing to get good production.

He added that even when the outcome is satisfactory, it cannot be disregarded that farmers are facing problems and have unaddressed grievances. Khokar added that their problems should be effectively resolved so the performance can be further improved.

Farmers would be more than happy provided they get the due return of their product without any delay and demanded that some mechanism is introduced and effectively enforced to ensure it.’ – he said.
