The World Nut index is the global benchmark for nuts and their value is calculated based on the average weight of a crop, according to the World Health Organization.
Cashew nut futures, also known as the futures of the nut, are priced in U.S. dollars.
It was the first of the four major indexes to release the rankings.
The index uses a methodology to determine how much of the value is due to the cost of production and how much is due on the market.
