Hi Siddarth, What is the success rate of High density cashew farming ? Have you helped any farmers in this area? Please provide details.

Hi,

We recommend farmers to not opt for high density cashew plantations.

It may look profitable in short term, but is difficult to manage in long term.

We recommend you to adopt a spacing of 6m by 6m that has proved to be most profitable.
