Tanzania’s Cashew Sector : Constraints And Challenges In A Global Environment
Auteur: Mitchell Donald, et al
"Cashews are an important export for Tanzania and an important source of income for small farmers in the southern coastal region. The sector has made a remarkable recovery since the near collapse of the 1980s. The recovery is credited to the economic reforms begun in 1986, especially trade liberalization and exchange rate adjustments, and to the sector reforms begun in the mid-1990s, that eliminated the monopoly of the Cashew Nut Marketing Board. The recovery was also aided by decision to export raw nuts rather than process them locally which meant that farmers were paid more quickly and they could afford to apply sulfur dust to control powdery mildew which increased yields.
