Tri-County Pecan Production Update

Tri-county Pecan Production - Lonoke, Prairie, & White County

As we move into mid-summer pecan trees are in the fruiting process. A good pesticide management program is essential to produce pecans, not only for this year but for 2023 as well.

Searcy, Ark. – July 13, 2022

Whether you have a pecan orchard or a few pecan trees in your yard for those holiday pies the correct pesticide and irrigation program is needed to help produce pecans.

Pecan trees are also dependent on the proper nutrients to help those young nutlets become mature nuts that we all look forward to in the fall of the year. Soil testing is recommended to help amend soils to aid in the production of pecan crops as needs can vary from year to year.
