Sugarcane crushing begins at ChamSugar mill

Mandya: The Times of India reports that Chamundeswari Sugars, popularly known as ChamsSugar, has commenced cane crushing operations, bringing relief to sugarcane farmers.

This year, the company has set a minimum target of crushing 10 lakh tonnes of sugarcane. Notably, ChamsSugar achieved a record last year by crushing a total of 10.35 lakh tonnes of cane. This year, they have started the crushing process two months earlier than the previous year.

Despite lower rainfall in the region, the supply of cane to the sugar mills will not be affected. However, there are uncertainties surrounding the operations of the struggling sugar mill, MySugar, for this season.

M Ravi, the general manager (engineering) of Chamundeswari Sugar, stated that their target this year is to crush 12 lakh tonnes of cane. Due to reduced rainfall, the yield is lower compared to last year, making it challenging to achieve the target. However, they are making their best efforts and are confident of crushing at least 10 lakh tonnes of cane.
