Crop Report (December 2011)

This entry was posted on Monday, December 5th, 2011 and is filed under Cashew.

According to some trade sources, Brazilian cashew crop is better than last year in quantity but slight inferior in terms of quality. Indonesian harvest may cross 60000 tons but Tanzania and Mozambique may not reach their targets. This year is not a good year for these two cashew growing countries because of the depreciation in the Indian Rupee and weather disturbances in the Indian ocean and Arabian sea. Mozambique expects around 7% decline in this year’s raw cashew harvest. And there is some concern that Tanzanian crop size might decrease by the same percentage and the quality may be lower compared to last season.
