Noble Research Institute Hosts Pecan Grove Management Seminar Focused on Native Variety CareMon, 16 Apr 2018 13:17:05 CDT
Pecan production provides potential income to landowners in Oklahoma and Texas. Native pecan groves are found along rivers, streams and creeks in both states. However, almost every native pecan grove is crowded with too many trees.
To provide landowners with updated information on native pecan grove management, the Noble Research Institute will host a Managing Your Native Pecan Grove Effectively seminar from 9 a.m. to noon, Monday, May 7, at the Noble Research Institute Pavilion.
Noble Research Institute consultants and researchers will provide pecan producers who are working to improve their established native pecan groves with the information and tools needed to effectively manage the groves.
“Native pecan thinning is a continuous process to maximize grove production,” said Charles Rohla, Ph.D., Noble Research Institute pecan and specialty agriculture systems manager. “Successful pecan management requires a broad base of knowledge.”
Agricultural producers who want to balance pecan and livestock production will have the opportunity to gain information needed to manage both as one system. Management methods will focus on land stewardship, increased productivity and economic efficiency.
This workshop is open to the public, but preregistration is requested. For more information or to register, please visit www.noble.org/events or call 580-223-5810.
