Noble Institute to Host Pecan Orchard Management Workshop This September, Registration OpenThu, 17 Aug 2017 10:55:44 CDT
Pecans have traditionally been thought of as a holiday pie filling, but agricultural producers are increasingly looking at this wonder nut as an investment. Many are planting pecans today, hoping to grow a brighter financial future.
To provide information on pecan management, the Noble Research Institute will host a Pecan 201 Workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 7, at the Noble Research Institute Kruse Auditorium.
This workshop will build off the Pecan 101 workshop and focus on advanced management techniques to assist landowners in pecan production. During the workshop, Noble Research Institute consultants and researchers will discuss irrigation, pecan marketing, disease, weed and nutrition management, and crop load management.
“Successful pecan management requires a broad base of knowledge, and this workshop helps lay the groundwork for those who are contemplating starting their own enterprise,” said Charles Rohla, Ph.D., Noble Research Institute pecan and specialty agriculture systems manager. “A review of these fundamentals can also help agricultural producers who have pecans on their property better use this valuable resource.”
Specialists from Texas A&M University and Oklahoma State University will discuss insect management, and pecan handling and production.
This workshop is open to the public, but preregistration is requested. Registration is $20 and includes lunch. For more information or to register, click here, or contact Danielle Pacifico at 580-224-6376 or Trisha DeLozier at 580-224-6377.
