Symptoms range from shucks turning all the way black to the tips green shucks turning
black and peeling back at the suture. In some cases, kernels are black and in other
cases, there is no kernel.
The degree of declining shucks is different from tree to tree.
Anthracnose, is one possible cause. It is caused by the fungus Glomerella cingulate.
On leaves, anthracnose looks like scorch. Growers notice these symptoms in July and
August. Anthracnose is actually one of the things that causes ‘scorch.’
Shuck decline is primarily a stress-related problem and on Stuart and most prolific
cultivars, it will always be worse on trees with a heavy crop load.
Especially on large, old trees with an overloaded crop it can be hard to get enough
water even with the best irrigation.
The nuts without kernel are related to this and are a natural fruit abortion because
the tree cannot handle the crop load they are bearing.
Continuing to irrigate is the best thing you can do to minimize the progression of
this problem going forward. This will be critical if September and October turn dry.
