Concerns for Goa cashew output

This article was originally published in Foodnews

GOA’s cashew production has dipped 50% this year, leading to fears of an acute shortage of the product. Output in April, when production is supposed to be at its peak, has disappointed farmers, the Times of India reported. The chairman of Goa Bagayatdar Sahakari Kharedi Vikri Society (GBSKVS), a leading purchaser of raw cashew in Goa, told the newspaper a change in weather destroyed cashew flowers, resulting in low production. Narendra Sawaikar said that during the previous season, the society purchased a total of 2 200 tonnes of raw cashews, but this year, it has received just 760 tonnes to date, which could touch 1 500 tonnes by the end of the season. The state could be forced to import raw cashew from Africa and Asia this year to make up for the shortfall.
