Hybrid Cashew Seedlings
There are three primary assortments which are Brazilian cashew, Chinese cashew, and Indian cashew. Brazilian cashew is generally filled in Nigeria.
Cashew is exceptionally cross-pollinated and vegetative engendering is fundamentally prescribed on a business scale to deliver consistent with type establishing materials.
The nuts can be planted 3 – 4 for each opening or brought up in the nursery and relocated in the field.
After the foundation, the plants are diminished to one sound and lively plant per stand.
Cashew can be proliferated by seedlings, air layers, and softwood joins.
Engendering BY SEEDLINGS
Choice of mother trees
Chosen mother trees ought to be of good wellbeing, overwhelming development, and escalated stretching propensity with panicles having a high level of bisexual blossoms. The trees ought to bear nuts of medium size and weight (5-8 g/nut) with a typical yield of 15 kg nuts for each annum and 7-8 nuts for every panicle.
Raise seedlings in polythene sacks during May. Splash seed nuts in water for 18 to 24 hours to rush germination. Plant the pre-doused seed nuts in polythene packs loaded up with garden soil at a profundity of 2-3 cm with the tail end up. Seeds sprout in seven to ten days.
Choice of seed nuts
New seed nuts ought to be gathered during the pinnacle time of collect in February-March and sun-dried for 2-3 days.
Medium-sized nuts of 7-9 g ought to be chosen to get uniform and overwhelmingly developing seedlings.
The sun-dried, reviewed seeds ought to be treated with carbaryl (5g/Kg of seeds) prior to putting away them in gunny packs or polythene sacks.
Arrangement of the preparing combination
Set up the preparing blend in the extent of one section red soil, one section sand and one section fertilizer in weighty precipitation regions and one section red soil, one section manure in low precipitation regions and blended in with a little amount of rock phosphate (10g/2Kg of the preparing combination).
Planting of seeds
The seed nuts ought to be absorbed water for 12-24 hours prior to planting to get great germination. At the hour of planting the dirt ought to be clammy and released in the polythene sack. Plant the seeds at a profundity of not more than 2.5 cm and cover them with little soil.
