Pecan Things to Do!
1. Bill Ree, retired Extension Entomologist and all-around pecan expert told me that the Pecan IPM-Pipe program is up and working for Pecan Nut Casebearer. Growers can access the program at Pecan ipmPIPE (click the link) and you will be at the welcome page and then can click on the Try it out here link
2. Commercial Pecan Production Program
This is what you do now that the world is turned upside down. I was scheduled to speak at many pecan programs this spring and of course they all got cancelled. I love having this opportunity and enjoy seeing pecan farmers but this year it all changed – until now!
I was contacted by a local county agent, Tom Guthrie (Mills County) about being a part of a regional pecan program on ZOOM.I have limited knowledge about how to do ZOOM but in a test run it all works and was easy.So, this next Thursday we will come together through the internet to have a normal pecan production program and you are encouraged to attend.
