Raw cashew price is a big political issue in Kerala. If required, the state government will definitely give budgetary support to ensure a minimum price.
Cashew is known as Goa Nut in the coastal region of India. So the government of Goa will give more and more subsidy to its prestigious crop, whenever there is a need.
Therefore, next year’s average price of raw cashew may remain around ₹130/kilo/165 counts/5% Driage (Removable Moisture) in Kerala. Government of Goa may even try its best to increase the price by 5-10 percent above this level.
