The presence of caustin cashew nut shell liquid ( CNSL) in the shels makes cashew processing little difficult and hazardous. Nuts are dried in the Sun on the hard ground i.e. on concrete yards. The nuts should be spread on the hard ground. For proper drying of nuts constant turning is important. Nuts require two / three days of Sun drying. Dried nuts should be stored in Jute bags and kept above the floor on wooden dunn. Direct contact of nut bags and floor should not be there, as this may damage the cashew nuts. The warehouse should be well ventilated with low humidity.
