‘Waste it Mentality’ Continues in the Indian Harvest, Exporters in Trouble!

This entry was posted on Monday, April 22nd, 2019 and is filed under Cashew.

Indian farmers are neglecting this year’s harvest as prices are lesser than their cost of labor. Cattle and other animals are freely eating/damaging the fallen nuts.

Large-scale exporters are not getting the required inventory to maintain the daily production despite this is the biggest season for cashew in India. Farmers resistance is compelling both Indian and Vietnamese enterprises to think about postponing their export commitments!

Total available raw quantity for the year 2019 is said to be 4 million tons, including the Tanzanian stock. But we think that the figure is 10% less in kernel terms; considering the wastage/reduced kernel yield on account of the farmers resistance in India and loss of kernel out-turn in the Tanzanian unsold stocks.
