The Cashew Plantation

About 18 months ago we purchased 21 acres of land, adjacent to the already existing rubber plantation. Cashew nut plants and bamboo, both sellable crops, have been planted. The challenge is that the cashew trees will take another 6 years to have their first harvest. And the weeds and brush is growing like mad, so a constant effort has to be made to keep things under control.
