May, 2015 Lecture Notes

India is the first country to exploit cashew as a commercial crop though five centuries after its introduction to India by Portuguese. Directorate of Cashew Research is the nodal agency for cashew research in the country. The research on cashew was initiated in the early 1950s and initially, Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) sanctioned Ad-hoc schemes in research centres of Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Assam and Maharastra. This was followed by sanctioning of All India Coordinated Spices and Cashew Improvement Project at CPCRI, Kasaragod and establishment of National Research Centre for Cashew at Puttur in 1986. This centre was further upgraded to Directorate of Cashew Research (DCR) in 2009.
