Analysis of Cashew Quality
   
     
Principal Activities

Our principal expertise is in the domain of agro commodities.  Promotion and Popularisation of Cashewnuts is very high on our Agenda with our ultimate goal being the effective value addition being performed on crops prior to export. 

However to achieve this goal one must first fulfil the primary goal of producing sufficient for exports or growing beyond the internal needs.  Thus providing the know-how and locally improved seed material and thereby increasing production & improving yields and inherent quality consciousness is our current and most important priority.
