Purchase the Texas Pecan Handbook
The recently updated Texas Pecan Handbook covers all aspects of growing pecans, including selecting the site, choosing the right variety, planting, managing mature trees, and controlling diseases and insects. Also discussed are the financial aspects of growing pecans and the health benefits of pecans. This manual is an ideal tutorial for beginning growers and useful reference for the experienced producer. The handbook also serves as the textbook for the annual 5-day Texas Pecan Short course at Texas A & M University. (199 pp.). By: Larry A. Stein, Extension Horticulture Program
