THE Indian state of Maharashtra is targeting an additional 2000 hectares of cashew plantation in order to boost production. The Maharashtra State Horticulture and Medicinal Plants Board plans to bring the extra land under cashew cultivation to bridge the gap between actual and optimum productivity, reported The Times of India. According to the paper, the board recently received aid of INR10.71 million (USD211 890) from the Central government’s Directorate of Cashewnut and Cocoa Development to increase land under plantation in five districts in the state. The target is to increase productivity by up to three tonnes per hectare.
