According to press reports, south-west monsoon has already entered Kerala and with in next 48 hours it will reach Karnataka and other areas of the Arabian sea. So, the upbeat mood in the Indian cashew kernel may face a temporary set back. Early monsoon is good for agricultural activities but it will certainly spoil the remaining south Indian cashew crop, which may be around 2%-3% of the Indian annual crop size. Cashew kernel market is still experiencing a supply shortage but during the heavy rains south Indian consumption decreases and producers and traders look towards north India and international markets.
