Cashew nut (Anacardium occidentale) is an important plantation crop and played a crucial role in Indian economy. This tropical nut and fruit are used under a variety of cooked foods, bakery industry and various other culinary purposes. Cashew is highly demanding and valuable in market for its outstanding test among all nuts. The true fruit of cashew is drupe type and nut grow at end of the cashew apple. In India, Maharashtra ranks first in cashew production followed by Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. In Andhra Pradesh, cashew nut cultivated mainly in 8 different districts of coastal region which occupies total 1.83 lakhs ha with a production of 99,000 Tonnes. Tough India has gained such an important position but every year cashew production faced biotic stress related drastic loss. Problems encircling cashew production are – proper land condition, getting skilled labour, sufficient funding or investment, Government loans, maximize exposure of products through marketing. Additionally, value added tax and turnover tax by the Government are considered to be the major problem. Various state Governments like Andhra Pradesh, giving 50% subsidy to farmers to encourage in cashew production and to fight against major biotic stresses like pestalotia leaf spot (Pestalotia heterocornis), anthracnose (Colletotrichum gloeosporides), gummosis (Lasiodiplodia theobromine), bacterial leaf spot (Xanthomonas citri pv. anacardii), the major pest such as tea mosquito bug, leaf folder, leaf Webber, stem and root borer leaf minor etc. The present article is a comprehensive draft on major biotic stress related challenges on cashew production in India.
