What are the challenges faced by the sugar industry?

Challenges:

(i) The industry is seasonal, so getting labour becomes difficult.

(ii) India is still using old and inefficient methods of production, thereby affecting its production.

(iii) There are transport delays in transporting sugarcane to factories, with the result that it loses its sugar content.

(iv) There is a need to maximise the use of baggasse to face the problem of power break up.
