Traditionally, pecan growers have used a grass drive row and an herbicide-treated band in the tree row for weed control (weed-free strip). However, orchard floor vegetative ground cover can be managed by mechanical, biological, cultural and chemical methods. Weed management is one of the most important areas of orchard floor management, as weeds compete with the trees for water and nutrients, inhibit adequate irrigation, and provide habitat for vertebrate pests. Join us in the field to see demonstrations on how to manage your pecan orchard floor.

Specialty crop growers all too often guess when it comes to scheduling irrigation and fertilizer application. This is especially true for producers new to growing on plastic mulch, which can be a little intimidating considering the growing surface is covered by plastic film.

To ensure water and plant nutrients are applied in an efficient, cost effective and environmentally responsible manner, application must be based on established guidelines. Join us to learn about soil-water-plant relationships and the various irrigation scheduling methods you can use to maintain the proper soil-air-water balance necessary for crops to thrive. You will also learn how to properly match fertilizer application with the nutrient requirements of crops.
