The sugarcane harvest season is at its peak in Pakistan and overloaded tractor-trolleys can be seen on narrow roads carrying the raw materials to sugar mills for crushing and processing into white refined sugar. Sargodha, Pakistan. 17/01/2010. Pakistan's MY 2009/10 sugar production is forecast at 3.65 million tonnes up about three per cent from the current year estimate of 3.56 million tonnes, according to the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service. Consumption is forecast at 4.35 million tonnes and imports at 730,000 tonnes. Trial production of sugar beet has proven successful but industry is reluctant to encourage expanded production due to technical and administrative challenges. Pakistan’s sugar industry produces more than half a million tons of ethanol per annum from cane molasses, over 50 per cent of which is exported to Europe, Far East and Middle East countries.
