Inquiry commission aims to determine sucrose recovery in sugarcane

Due to the increase in sugar prices, an inquiry commission has been set up to determine average sucrose recovery in sugarcane assortment in various regions of the country.

In another turn of events, the Inquiry Commission on Increase in Sugar Prices has additionally extended its extent of the test as it has solicited the Ministry of Science and Technology to decide the normal sucrose recovery in sugarcane assortments developed in south Punjab, KPK and Sindh and present the report inside seven days’ time.

The inquiry commission esteems that the sucrose recovery rate in sugarcane assortments in Pakistan has a significant role in increment in sugar cost just as in making godsend benefits of sugar factory proprietors.

Aside from knowing the explanations behind increment in sugar value, the Inquiry Commission will likewise set up the report about the issues relating to an operational instrument of each sugar factory. However, the Ministry of Science and Technology has refused to set up a report inside seven days saying that the said report must be made during the crushing season.

In any case, the inquiry commission will do its best to find out the answers to the questions as asked before by the ministry of science and technology. In a letter marked by DG FIA Wajid Zia routed to secretary Ministry of Science and Technology, the board argued that there is no autonomous component for deciding the sucrose recovery rate from sugarcane in the nation and it is seen that the rate is a lot higher in other sugarcane developing nations versus Pakistan.

“So the Inquiry Commission needs the service to direct research facility tests freely and decide the normal sucrose recovery rate in sugarcane assortments developed in south Punjab, Sindh, and KP.” According to exactly, the request commission looked for the data inside multi weeks’ time emphatically.

In any case, because of the inquiry commission, Dr. Naseem Rauf, Member (Science) in the Ministry of Science and Technology, said that the PCSIR (Pakistan Council of Scientific and Industrial Research) labs buildings in Lahore, Karachi, and Peshawar have the offices to decide sucrose rate in sugarcane and normal sucrose rate recovery in sugarcane.

In the letter, she additionally featured the way that the normal sucrose rate in sugarcane ought to be resolved in the crushing season as the sucrose rate may shift during the season. Moreover, the sucrose recovery rate relies on the assortments, development stage, atmosphere, soil, and manor time.

In the letter, the Ministry of Science and Technology additionally recommended to the request commission to devise an inspection plan to have a clear picture of sucrose content in various assortments.
