Walnut is one of the dry fruits, which offer lots of health benefits. Walnuts are grown in many countries, and Australia is one among them. Recently, India and Australia have decided to allow the entry of Australian walnuts to the Indian market.
Australian Agriculture Minister, David Littlepround said that two countries had signed a deal on 6th of February 2019 to formally commence the trade once the authorities of India have officially gazetted the import terms and conditions.
As a trial, small quantities of shipment of Australian walnuts will arrive in India before the official trading starts.
Problems like disease and pesticides are the major problem when shipping the edibles from one country to another country. The Australian minister said that he is discussing with the researchers to find out the possible ways to prevent these issues, which makes the exports very difficult.
