Sugarcane Procurement

Every year BHSL conducts a survey of its command area to record the total cane cultivated area. This survey, among other things, also helps us understand the different varieties of sugarcane grown by farmers each year.

Post this, all sugarcane farmers within the command area of the mill are given a calendar which tells them when they can expect a Mill Supply Ticket (Purchy) against which they will supply their produce.

The calendar is distributed over 180 days. Based on the maturity and recovery expected from the varieties, the distribution is worked out in the calendar.

After receiving the purchy, the farmer harvests the cane and transports it to the mill gate. Farmers located in far flung locations supply their produce at mill's centers from where the sugar cane is then transported in trucks or through rail to the mill.

BHSL has a total of 1,41,155 hectares of cultivable land under in its command areas. This area covers 1,344 villages and has over 95 centres. The company purchases cane from over 1,13,577 farmers. Assuming that each farmer has a family of five, over half a million people across UP remain directly dependent on the Company's for their livelihood.
