Mention three factors that have helped the sugar industry flourish in the peninsular region rather than in the northern regions of India.
Three factors that have helped the sugar industry flourish in the peninsular region are:
- The climate of south India is more favourable than the climate of north India. The climate of south India is free from extreme summers and frost during winters. Thus a longer production period of sugarcane exists in peninsular India.
- The black soil in peninsular India is more fertile for growing sugarcane than the alluvial soil in north India.
- An excellent network of transportation facilities exists in the states like Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. This has further boosted the sugarcane industry in peninsular India.
