Letter from the Editor: “Get More Pecan South”
The pecan industry’s conference season picks up this month, with industry groups meeting across the Pecan Belt. In the coming weeks, pecan growers will gather for the TriState Pecanference and the Oklahoma Pecan Growers Conference for orchard tours, educational programs, and camaraderie. Then in late July, the Texas Pecan Growers Association hosts its annual conference and trade show, another chance for growers and industry members to meet and learn about all things pecan.
This Buyer’s Edition of Pecan South heads out to these conferences and others across the industry, reaching new growers and industry members. While you’re at these meetings, this magazine can serve as one way to spark conversation with new and old friends. Our special Buyer’s Edition includes articles on regenerative agriculture, seasonal management topics, an ongoing study on truffles, and insight into pecan growing in Mexico and Argentina, as well as advertisements for equipment dealers, nursery trees, and more.
If you finish this magazine and are hungry for more information on pecans, head to PecanSouthMagazine.com. Our website houses our ever-expanding digital archives, and your subscription includes complete access. This month you might be interested in learning more about Pecan Nut Casebearer or scab control; I suggest reading Bill Ree’s article “Beware the Second Generation of Pecan Nut Casebearer” from our June 2019 issue or “Summer Scab Defense” by Monte Nesbitt in the June 2015 Pecan South. These are just two of the many articles on our website! Contact our office if you have any questions or need help getting set up.
Until Next Time,
