The country produced 2.4 million tonnes of sugar during the period, up 3.4 percent year on year, according to a monthly report by the Chinese Agriculture Outlook Committee, an advisory body under the ministry.

Meanwhile, 1.31 million tonnes of sugar was sold, up 26 percent year on year.

The report warned of the possible impact of weather conditions on the sugar output as recent cold waves have affected the growth of sugarcane in the south.
