Do you know Agriculture can Raise Sugarcane Production by 40 Mt Per Acre? Experts from the Agriculture Department have advised sugarcane farmers and growers throughout Pakistan to employ the most up-to-date technologies for their operations. According to research conducted by the Department, Pakistan’s average sugarcane growth per acre can rise by 40 to 50 tonnes if the farmers use the most recent production techniques.

The finest months for sugarcane crop cultivation in Baharia are February and March, according to a spokeswoman for the department who talked to the media on Monday. Because late sowing could affect both the quality and quantity of the production, growers should start cultivating sugarcane right away and finish it by the middle of March.

He advised farmers to produce sugarcane across the largest possible area of their fields because it was Pakistan’s fourth most important crop after rice, cotton, and wheat and would also significantly lessen the financial hardship of the growers due to its high market value.

“The sugarcane crops would also be essential for meeting local food needs. Therefore, for cultivation, farmers should only employ certified kinds. The most recent methods might also significantly improve sugarcane production per acre.
