India sugar production is forecasted up 4 million tonnes — USDA

India production is estimated up 4.0 million tonnes to 36.0 million on higher sugarcane area and yields.

It is reported by USDA in its November report.

Consumption is anticipated to be up on increased demand from bulk buyers and processed food manufacturers. Exports are forecast lower on the likelihood that the government maintains export caps to control food inflation and to meet the demand for domestic consumption. Stocks are estimated flat as a result of lower beginning stocks and higher consumption.
