Pecan South has learned through the National Pecan Federation that the U.S. Consulate in Mexico had decided to shut down H-2A application processing effective tomorrow in response to #COVID19. After the urging of the Secretary of Ag and members of Congress, the Consulate will continue to process returning H-2A workers but will not process any new applications at this time.

"There are still some outstanding issues, and we are hopeful this will continue to loosen up," says Bob Redding, the lobbyist with the National Pecan Federation.

Georgia Pecan Growers Association, Inc

The Georgia Pecan Growers Association, Inc announced this morning that its Annual Conference will be postponed until Sept. 10-11, 2020, due to the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus.

Pecan South will continue to share information about potential conference and meeting date changes as more comes to light.

Georgia Pecan Growers and Supporters,

In efforts to be proactive about the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus, the GPGA Annual Conference will be postponed until September 10th and 11th, 2020. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and with respect to so many of our attendees who travel for this event. The conference will remain in Tifton for the fall event and will essentially combine our Spring conference with our annual Fall Field Day.

The annual conference is the Association’s main fundraiser. The conference is vital for funding GPGA’s operation expenses throughout the year, so your patience and support is greatly appreciated through this unprecedented event and challenging time.

Registration will remain open online until the event occurs in September. All planned events will proceed at the fall event, including the golf tournament, orchard tour, Welcome Reception, and Annual Awards Luncheon, as examples. We will go ahead and hold the Reverse Raffle on March 24, 2020 as an online event via Facebook Live through our page @GeorgiaPecanGrowersAssociation. The exact time of the drawing is still to be determined and will be announced in follow-up emails. Again, as a fundraiser, we kindly ask for your support and raffle tickets are still available for purchase.

The Jack Thompson Scholarship Award winners will be notified by email and announced via social media on March 25, 2020.

For those of you who have already pre-registered and plan to attend in the fall, you DO NOT have to register again.

For those of you who have not yet registered, you may still do so online or by calling our office.

If you have already registered and would like a refund, please call us at the office at 229-382-2187.

Please understand that there may be a delay in answering calls and communication due to the volume of requests we are receiving at this time and the possibility of operating with significantly reduced office staff. However, we will do our very best to serve you and look forward to the September event!

Thank you!
GPGA Staff & Board of Directors

Planting, Propagating, & Promoting Pecans in South Africa

"Last month we explored the history of the South African pecan industry. With roots back in the late 1800s, this industry has exhibited steady growth over the years, but since China entered the market, that steady growth skyrocketed. Over the last decade, more and more farmers started seriously planting pecan trees with hopes that they’ll get a piece of that success.

"Before they achieve this success, South African growers and processors must first confront numerous challenges, learn from their mistakes and research, and drive future growth. This month we explore South African pecan production techniques and industry challenges."

Texas 512 Brewing Teases Pecan Porter Bottle Release

Another pecan-related product comes onto the craft brewery scene.

"During their opening year, the small brewery released (512) Pecan Porter in the taproom and people were instantly hooked to the Texas-inspired porter. So much so that they begged the brewery to offer it in bottles. It took a few long-awaited years, but it seems like its finally happening."

Get to know Pecan South

Published monthly by the Texas Pecan Growers Association, Pecan South wasn’t always known as Pecan South. The American pecan industry’s leading publication started off as a bimonthly publication called Texas Pecan News, which was first published by J.E. Hutchison, the then TPGA secretary.

As the industry changed, the magazine evolved to keep pace. In May 1969, Texas Pecan News was reintroduced as The Pecan Quarterly. With a new name and a new look, the magazine focused more on providing information and advice to the entire Pecan Belt. Although published by the Texas Pecan Growers Association, the staff and TPGA board at the time recognized the need for a publication that could represent and serve the entire industry. This vision remains Pecan South’s mission.

In fact, The Pecan Quarterly was officially designated “the national pecan magazine” by The Federated Pecan Growers of the United States on June 18, 1969 at their meeting in Monroe, Louisiana. By recognizing the magazine as such, the Federated Pecan Growers of the U.S.—now known as the U.S. Pecan Growers Council—bestowed on it the enormous responsibility of being the national voice for pecan growers across the United States.

Even with the goal of growing larger, The Pecan Quarterly held steadfast to its main priority: maintaining quality. It did this by drawing together scientists, researchers, and pecan industry members to provide invaluable knowledge to readers every quarter.

By focusing on quality, the magazine was able to grow yet again. In the 1990s, The Pecan Quarterly acquired Pecan South magazine and adopted its name. With this transformation, Pecan South took on the title of “the national pecan magazine,” one which it continues to hold and cherish today.

As the pecan magazine, Pecan South remains the preferred publication for growers, processors, commercial vendors, and pecan enthusiasts alike. With over 60 years under its belt, this magazine continues to grow, prosper, and stretch its roots in the hopes of reaching pecan growers and industry members not only around the country but also around the world.

If you’d like to learn more about Pecan South, please visit our website or call our office. Or come by our office and meet our staff! We’re located in Bryan, Texas, and our door is always open.

We have finally started harvesting pecans here in SE Oklahoma. The weather has not cooperated much but I'm sure better days are ahead. We are dealing with a major dirt clot problem due to wild hogs. My husband has been dealing with hog problem using hunters and traps but they just keep keep crossing Boggy River into our bottom. Now back to the problem at hand. DIRT CLOTS! Any suggestions? we have about 40,000 pounds in sacks that are full of dirt clots. In the past we have floated them in a tank but at most a 1000 pounds.
