Indian cashew industry is heavily dependent on the imported raw cashew nuts (about 50% of requirement) for fulfilling domestic and export demand for cashew kernels. Department of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmers Welfare (DAC&FW), under Mission for Integrated Development of Horticulture (MIDH) and Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY), has drawn up strategies to increase domestic production by massive area expansion of cashew and replacing of senile cashew plantations with high yielding varieties in traditional and non-traditional states.
