We presently have over 60,000 cashew stands comprising mainly of the early fruiting and quality fruit yielding Brazilian dwarf varieties. Others include; Brazilian jumbo, the medium jumbo and local varieties.
Our cashew farmland is interplanted with Tropical Manihot Esculentum Accession 419 (TME 419) the early fruiting and quality starch producing cassava variety locally known as 419 cassava, and hybrid corn also. The interplanted crops are temporary.
From the available production statistics, and based on the number of Cashew stands on our farm land, with good farm management/ maintenance practices being adopted, TFL will definitely be counted among the largest raw cashew nut producers in Nigeria, in the very nearest future.
