New Delhi. Cashew farming will be started soon in Betul district of Madhya Pradesh. Preparation has also started in the district for its cultivation. Initially, its cultivation will be started in the first 50 lakh hectares as an experiment. Cashew seed has been imported from Africa. Betul will be the first district of the state where cashew production will be started on such a large scale in a planned manner. Dr. Venkatesh, director of cashew operations, said this after a three-day visit to Betul district. Dr. Venkatesh had toured the district for three days along with Dr. Asha Upavanshi, Deputy Director of Horticulture Department. During this, Dr. Venkatesh told that Vengrula-47 variety of cashew suits the climate in Betul and efforts will be made to plant it as soon as possible. The government of the country has made preparations to get this cashew seed from Africa. As soon as this seed arrives, it will be made available to the farmers. According to Benktesh, there is immense potential for cashew cultivation in the district. Farmers can also produce cashew on their waste land. At present, a target has been fixed to cultivate cashew on 150 hectares of land.
Farming is being done in three different sections
At present, cashew is cultivated only in three development blocks, Ghoradongri, Shahpur and Chicholi. Dr. Venkatesh also met the cashew growing farmers here. Dr. Venkatesh said that in Maharashtra’s famous Ratnagiri farmers are also producing cashew instead of Hapus and Alphonso mangoes. They are earning lakhs of rupees from cashew production. They are earning better income even from infertile lands. Deputy Director Horticulture Dr. Asha Upavanshi told that cashew producing farmers of Maharashtra will be brought and trained in cashew production to the farmers of Betul.
Currently, cashew cultivation is done in eight states.
The origin of cashew is Brazil, from where it was brought to in the late 16th century for the purpose of afforestation and soil conservation. Cultivation is done in Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Odisha, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal along the western and eastern coast of the country. Apart from this, cashew is also cultivated in some areas of Assam, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Tripura.
