 Sugarcane production

India is the world's largest consumer and the second-largest producer of sugarcane, after Brazil. As a commercial crop and its ease of cultivation, the crop is highly desired by farmers. While most of the cultivated sugarcane is used for sugar extraction, it is also a raw material for alcohol production. Due to its economic benefits, globally the crop has had a constant increase in its production.
