Grafting Technology for Support Extensification, Replanting, and Rehabilitation of Cashew Plantation

ESTATE CROPS INFO – Initially cashew cultivation was aimed at marginal land conservation. A tight spacing (3 m x 3 m) so that the crown can cover the ground as quickly as possible to prevent soil erosion during rain and deciduous cashew leaves will add soil organic matter. Therefore aspects of plant productivity have not […]

Water Transport and Growth of Cashew (Anacardium occidentale L.) Under Soil Mechanical Impedance

Estate Crops News – The ability to adapt to soil mechanical impedance was considered to support cashew growing in drought prone areas, since those areas are sometimes aggravated by problem on soil mechanical impedance. The response of water transport and growth under soil mechanical impedance was  evaluated  at  two  productive  cashew  accessions.

Identification of Morpho-Physiological Characters Determining Yield in Cashew Nut

ESTATE CROPS NEWS – Cashew productivity in Indonesia is still low, due to improper cultivation technique and the use of unimproved varieties. Crop yield is determined by several morpho-physiological characters such as leaf area, leaf thickness, the number of stomata, the rate of photosynthesis, chlorophyll content, relative water content (RWC), and leaf osmotic potential.
