When our focus is on the major pests we are familiar with, we sometimes miss detecting signs and symptoms of minor pests. Although minor pests cause little economic injury, occasionally their numbers can cause big problems. The nut curculio is one minor pest you should be familiar with.

Harvest Demo at the GPGA 2019 Fall Field Day
Have you ever seen a harvest like this?
Yesterday at the Georgia Pecan Growers Association, Inc Annual Fall Field Day, King Springs Pecans showed how their crew harvests using the Catchall from Orchard Machinery Corporation - OMC. One of the owners of King Springs Pecans, Paul Quiros, said that using this equipment, they're able to harvest 10 acres in one hour and 50 acres a day.
We’re out exploring orchards in South Georgia that were affected by #HurricaneMichael. Join us live at our first stop, Sunnyland Farms in Albany.
Featured on the June cover, Cinco B Farm sits in Burton, Texas and has about 630 trees. Growers Pat and Marguerite Baggett started the orchard in 1991 by planting 80 trees by themselves. At the time, they didn’t know anything about pecans. They didn’t have a house but lived in the barn. They didn’t even have hot water. Pat Baggett says, “We had a hot plate, toilet and sink. And that was it.” Today, the Baggetts have transformed their property into a little paradise and still do most of the work on the orchard by themselves.

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.

Anyone selling wholesale? 500 lbs or more in shell?
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.
