This working paper makes a part of bigger project on "Economic and Management Aspects of Sugar Production from Sugar beet" sponsored by the Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India, New Delhi, to the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. The objective of the paper was to examine the economics of sugar production under different systems, namely cane sugar alone, beet sugar alone, and cane and beet sugar in the same sugar factory. For this purpose The Ganganagar Sugar Mills, Limited, (along with cane) in India, was selected. The analysis of data for the year 1979-80 showed that the sugar unit at Sri Ganganagar was incurring losses. It was observed that processing of beet alone was the most costly which processing of cane and beet in the same unit was least costly system.
