Farmers asked to sow new variety of sugarcane

Moradabad (Uttar Pradesh): The managing director of Triveni Sugar Mill, T.S. Yadav, inspected the Munshiganj sugarcane center in Thakurdwara, Uttar Pradesh, on Wednesday, reported Live Hindustan.

Yadav told farmers that the sugar mill had already paid Rs 15.10 crore for sugarcane purchased up to November 6. He urged farmers to supply clean and fresh sugarcane, as red rot impacted sugarcane has a low recovery rate. He also advised farmers not to sow the 0238 variety of sugarcane, but to sownew varieties, such as 0118, 98014, and 15023. He also urged farmers not to rush to supply their sugarcane to any mill.

Akhil Bharatiya Kisan Mazdoor Sabha leader Pritam Singh also visited the Munshiganj sugarcane center. He spoke about the problems faced by farmers, saying that there is a problem with sugarcane lifting at the Munshiganj and Fauladpur sugarcane centers. He demanded that the transport be increased at both centers and that the receipts of sugarcane centers in the region should also be issued along with the mill gate.

Zone in-charge Rajveer Singh Sandhu, Rajiv Kumar, Udayveer Singh, Sarjit Singh, Mithun Kumar, Umesh Kumar, Jagesh Singh, Todhi Singh, Mahavir Singh, and Devender Pal was also present on the spot.
