Cashew farmers decry expatriates’ encroachment on plantations
The National Cashew Association of Nigeria (NCAN) has expressed concern over the encroachment on their farms by foreigners, saying the development was capable of denying the nation revenue from the crop.

NCAN’s national president, Tola Faseru, who spoke at the 2016 National Cashew Trade Administration meeting of the association in Ogbomosho, Oyo State, noted that the encroachment had been causing distractions for local farmers, which could cause low quality produce, reduced value at the international market and lower purchasing power for Nigerians farmers.
“Expatriates are positioned in the bushes to buy directly from the farmers thereby taking away the much needed jobs from our people,” he stated.

Faseru said the international markets expect 8 percent moisture of the cashew for the best quality and when cashew is not well-dried, it is difficult to achieve this quality and such low quality of the product will spoil the image of the country.

“We want our farmers to dry their cashew to 8 percent at the farm gate and at the earliest time so that it will meet international standards and if all these are done well, the farmers will earn more, the country will earn more and most importantly the interest for Nigerian cashew in the international market will continue to increase,” he explained.
