Growers decry as Sugar Mills cut sugarcane price

Tando Adam: Sugar Mills of the province have cut the price of sugarcane and are paying Rs.130/- per 40kg to the growers instead of Rs.145/- per 40kg causing huge financial losses to the growers.

The growers of Tando Adam Tehsil of Sanghar district said the middlemen too were blackmailing the growers using different tactics. The growers had already suffered a lot as the torrential monsoon rains had damaged sugarcane besides other crops earlier this year. The growers demanded the government to fix sugarcane rate at Rs.300/- per 40kg.
