Cashew Corporation has planted 1,000 acres of cashew in lands which are owned by Civil Defence Force, three armed forces and Department of Prisons.

The Chairman of the Corporation, Dhamsiri Bandara said it will address the cashew nut shortage in the country.

Due to various reasons including environmental issues, cashew production in Sri Lanka declined by 50% and 6000MT of cashew have been imported to meet the demand.

He also said to reduce the amount of imports, cashew plants have been grown in around 1000 acres in Puttalam and Thiriyaya.
