Description:
Managing pecan trees for consistent production and high quality nuts is key to a successful pecan operation. Pecan trees are a masting species, which means they produce a large crop in one year and a low to no crop in the following year. To produce a crop of high quality nuts each year, it is important to manage in ways that lessen the effects of the crop load. Hedging trees has been a strategy used in the Western growing region for years. Hedging removes a portion of the fruiting wood from the tree, allowing only non-hedge portions to set a fruit. This lessens crop stress on the tree, increasing nut quality and ensuring return bloom on the hedged portion of the tree in the following year. Join Noble Research Institute pecan specialists as they review strategies for hedging pecan trees and discuss management practices to maintain high quality pecans on a more consistent basis.
