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.
