Description: Have you ever wondered why the nuts on your pecan tree are undeveloped? There are several pests that pecan trees can get which decrease the productivity of the tree. Homeowners can not spray big pecan trees like the commercial growers. But, planting disease resistant trees, along with proper fertilization, will help your pecan production. On Tuesday, October 23rd there will be an educational pecan production workshop at the Autauga County Extension office in Autaugaville. On November 16th the pecan production meeting will be at the First Baptist Church in Sylacauga. The meetings begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 12 noon. Topics to be discussed at this meeting include site selection, cultivar selection, proper planting, fertility, weed control, irrigation, insects, disease, and pecan propagation. There is a $5.00 registration fee for these meetings and you must pre-register to attend.
