It is the most important among the shelled nuts and the third most important nut traded in the USA. Since its development largely affects rural economies and the developed world, its appropriate propagation, processing and trading becomes of paramount importance. Provision has been made in the book by the authors to carefully guide students, teachers and lecturers to understand the practices of sowing and grafting in particular, to promote the cashew trade. Various pictures on the different categories have been provided to aid teaching, reading and understanding.
