Under the aegis of Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav campaign, a Scientist-Extension-Farmer interface meeting on Cashew Production technologies was organised at ICAR-Directorate of Cashew Research, Puttur for the ST farmers today.
During the interface farmers were apprised about on the varieties suitable for the region, scientific management of Cashew and the scope of value addition of Cashew Apple. An important concern raised by the farmers during the interface meeting was regarding the low price for raw cashew nuts which makes cashew farming less profitable.
Following the interface meeting, around 2000 cashew grafts were distributed to 14 farmers under the TSP programme of the Directorate.
