Nuts especially those of cashew contain nutrients such as fibre, proteins, folate and several other minerals, and this has encouraged more people to consume this nut daily.

This has generated high demand for nuts such as cashew nut. So, to meet up with the growing demand, genetically modified crops have been looked into to help those in the business to keep up with demand.
