DUBAI, March 6 (Reuters) - Sugar cane planting in the western Indian state of Maharashtra and southern Karnataka is expected to fall for the 2024/25 season starting from Oct.1, a leading industry body said on Wednesday at a sugar conference in Dubai.

Rainfall during the June-September monsoon season would determine sugar production, said Mandava Prabhakar Rao, president of Indian Sugar & Bio-Energy Manufacturers Association (ISMA).
