GURU NANAK DEV SUGARCANE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE, KALANAUR, DIST. GURDASPUR, PUNJAB
An institute dedicated for sugarcane research and development, working closely with sugar industry and cane growers of the Punjab State
Vision: Progress, prosperity & growth of the Punjab Sugar Industry in general and the cane growers of Punjab in particular.
In order to increase the income of the farmers specifically the sugarcane growers in the State, the more stress should be given to increase of yield rather than increase in price, as an increase of price of sugarcane @ Rs.10/- per qtl. adds to around Rs.3000/- per acre only to farmer's income whereas an increase of yield by around 50 qtls/acre which is very much achievable within next two years will add to around 15000/- per acre. There is a potential to enhance the yield up to around 400 Qtls/ Acres in the State in next three to four years which will substantially increase the farmers income.
In view of the details mentioned above as well as keeping in view the recommendations of the Cabinet Sub Committee, it is felt that in order to increase the per acre yield of sugarcane as well as sugar recovery which will in turn add to the income of farmers & sugar mills in addition to a boost for agriculture diversification, the State of Punjab should have an dedicated Sugarcane Institute catering to the needs of the farmers & sugar mills of the State.
