Highlights
1. Sugar cane
The production of sugar cane went down by 3.1% from 4,365,833 tonnes in 2010 to 4,230,173 tonnes in 2011. This is mostly explained by a reduction of 3.5% in the area harvested from 58,709 hectares in 2010 to 56,639 hectares in 2011. The yield of sugar cane has increased by 0.4%, from 74.4 tonnes per hectare in 2010 to 74.7 in 2011.
Sugar production dropped by 3.8% from 452,473 tonnes in 2010 to 435,309 tonnes in 2011. The average extraction rate was 10.30% in 2011 compared to 10.37% in 2010, representing a decrease of 0.7%.

2. Tea
The production of green tea rose by 21.8% from 7,370 tonnes in 2010 to 8,975 tonnes in 2011, resulting in an increase of 21.8% in the production of manufactured tea from 1,467 tonnes to 1,787 tonnes.
3. Tobacco
Area harvested in 2011 went up by 4.2% from 213 hectares in 2010 to 222 hectares. Consequently, the production of tobacco leaves increased by 11.3% from 310 tonnes in 2010 to 345 tonnes in 2011.

4. Food crops
Area harvested under food crops went down by 2.7% from 7,570 hectares in 2010 to 7,364 hectares in 2011, however the production of food crops increased by 0.7% from 114,844 tonnes in 2010 to 115,618 tonnes in 2011.
