This entry was posted on Tuesday, April 15th, 2014 and is filed under Cashew.

There is considerable improvement in new crop arrival across South India. But analysts predict that the total crop estimate for this year is 25% lower than the last year’s crop. This is mainly due to steep downfall in the last four weeks.¬†El Nino seems to have affected the harvest in the coastal regions.

The weather conditions are improving in Vietnam but this year’s kernel filling out-turn is said to be atleast 2% lower in comparison with the past few years.

West African crop size and quality is likely to be normal.

Overall there is a need for abnormal increase in the kernel market following this year’s raw cashew price, out-turn and Forex situations.
