- An experiment was conducted to study the influence of different levels of nutrients and growth regulators on nut yield of cashew (Anacardiumoccidentale L.) variety VRI -2 at State Horticultural Farm, Neyveli, and Tamil Nadu. The study was revealed that soil application of 75 percent of the recommended dose of fertilizer + 100 kg of FYM + Cow pea as an intercrop + 1.0 kg Humic acid as soil application + 3 per cent Panchakavya as foliar spray had increased the productivity viz., maximum total number of flowers panicle-1 (910.25),number ofhermaphrodite flowers panicle-1 (71.68), number of fruits panicle-1 (16.67), percentage of fruits panicle-1 (23.26), nut yield tree-1 (14.19kg), nut weight (5.19g), kernel weight (1.87g) and apple weight (44.98g) and shelling percentage (36.02) as compared to control.
