Cashew Trees Depend Greatly On The Weather

According to the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development of Binh Phuoc Province, cashew trees depend greatly on the weather. If the weather is favorable, the yield will be high. Meanwhile, in bad weather, such as unseasonal rain, heavy rain, hoarfrost, and prolonged hot sun, despite being fertilized, cashew trees cannot achieve high productivity. This year, the cashew crop in the province has a poor harvest, reaching only 50 percent of productivity compared to the same period last year. In the past ten years, there were 3-4 years of crop failure due to bad weather. The department recommends that farmers should not rush to cut down cashew trees to grow other crops because the weather is not always unfavorable. Besides, investing in other crops will take time and high investment costs.
