Nowadays, just one or two showers are enough to spoil the raw cashew in the Kerala state of India. Nuts from Kerala need 3 days of proper sunshine to remove the extra water content.

100 kilo becomes 90 kilo when it becomes full dry. 

Filling out-turn also falls below 24%.

But in Andhra, Orissa, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka and Tamilnadu farmers take more care during the unseasonal rainy time. They sell only after removing the extra moisture.
