Sugar production in Maharashtra, the country's second-biggest producer, is likely to decline by 39.2% year- on-year in 2019/20 to 6.5 million tonnes because of a drought-hit cane crop, top official of the Maharashtra Sugar Commissionerate said.

The ongoing drought situation in the state could see cane acreage shrink by at least 28% to 8.43 lakh hectare for the 2019-20 season, against 11.62 lakh hectare in 2018-19, the official said.

Maharashtra received 23% less rainfall than normal during the June-September monsoon season in 2018, state government data shows.

Maharashtra produced a record 10.7 million tonnes of sugar in 2018-19.
