Pecan Workshop

279 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Heflin, AL 36264

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, practices such as planting disease resistant trees, along with proper tree care, will help your pecan production.
On Wednesday, October 9th the Alabama Cooperative Extension System will be teaching an educational pecan production workshop at the Community Arts Center in Heflin (279 martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Heflin). The meeting begins 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 no registration fee for these meetings but you must pre-register to attend as seating is limited. For more information or to pre-register, please contact the Cleburne County Extension Office at (256) 463-2620.
