Crushing is an important aspect in sugarcane crop as it leads to production of sugar. The crushing period starts in the month of October and ends in March and April of the immediate succeeding year. The maximum crushing takes place in the month of January where large amount of harvested sugarcane is being crushed. In different states of India, this crushing period varies on the basis of the availability of sugarcane.

Sugarcane has to be crushed within 24 hours of its harvest. It is because sugarcane contains a juice known as sucrose and if not crushed within 24 hours, it may dry up because of the heat. This may result in low production of sugar and jaggery affecting the profitability of growing sugarcane.
