Vsakhapatnam: Cashew, which is grown as a mixed crop across 1.2 lakh acres of land in the district including the Agency belt, has been one of the mainstays of the farmers in the region. However, this year, cashew is likely to disappoint the farming community due to various reasons and ryots are already speculating that even if there is a price hike per bag this time, the loss of crop acerage will still put them in the red.
Last year, each bag was sold for Rs 8,000. P Srinivasa Rao, a senior retired field scientist who still assists the district administration, said, "Late blooming is an issue that bothers farmers a lot. Whenever there is an extended cold season with heavy dew, the trees bloom later than usual. Usually, cashew should be in full bloom by the month of February. This time, it has not happened chiefly because of an extended cold season. We are expecting the trees to bloom properly after the first week of March and, hopefully, they will flower to their potential."
But farmers are worried that even if the trees bloom properly, if the market is already flooded with cashew from elsewhere, the prices will fall instead of going up. C Kami Naidu, a farmer from Ramannapalem village in Makkavaripalem mandal, said, "Just because the trees bloom late does not mean that the farmers and those who take the crop on lease will make a killing. It all depends on how the markets function. Once the market is flooded with cashew from down south, the prices will fall and we may not be able to make the money we think we can. For that matter, prices could even crash."
Keeping a close watch on the situation, the horticulture department officials have advised the farmers to wait and watch and hoping that there will be no crop loss as far as cashew is concerned.

El Niño is definitely also having an impact on West African cashew crops, Global Trading & Agency observed in a report today.

Cashew nut farmers in the Nkoranza District in the Brong Ahafo Region are pleading with government to come to their aid.
The farmers, mostly from Kranka, Dorma-Kradaso and Brofoyeduru are totally deserted from all assistances other farmers benefit from government.
This came to the limelight when a survey was conducted by Good Governance Africa-West Africa (GGA-West Africa) within some selected farming communities in the region.
Expressing their grievances - the farmers called for a special board to regulate activities with respect to sales, market, farm inputs among others regarding cashew nut production as done for cocoa and other foreign exchange products.
They also nit-picked of the increasing high cost of labor, fertilizer, pesticides and other farm inputs.
According to GGA-West Africa - the central government’s grant on fertilizers does not benefit these farmers.
However, despite being the largest producers of cashew nuts in Ghana for exportation, the aged farmers noted that sooner or later, their farm products will die out if an alternative source of water is not produced for them for irrigation.
“We are pleading to the Central government and other individuals to construct dams to serve as a reserve and augment the seasonal rainfall pattern.” - This they said will aide them in cultivating other crops as supplements for the cashew nuts.
GGA-West Africa is however advocating for a more efficient and effective Agric sector which has the interest of all farmers at heart and does well to eliminate the stereotype of farmers being the poorest individuals in Ghana.
Chinese and Indian businessmen are the main buyers of cashew nuts in the country, however, according to Mama Saliu Lamba who heads the new Chamber of Commerce, they are not coming to the country due to prevailing insecurity.
