In Karnataka, it is grown on an area of 0.33 m ha with a production of 30 m t and productivity of 88 t ha-1.Byproducts derived from sugarcane include trash, bagasse, molasses and pressmud with annual production of 12-15 m t of trash, 75-90 m t of bagasse, 10-12 m t of molasses and 8-10 m t of press mud in India.Cotton plays a vital role in the textile industry.Indi having largest area under cotton (9 m ha) constituting 26% of total world cotton area, presently produces 4.59 m t (27 million bales) which constitutes 18% of the world cotton production.
