Current and Future Applications of Unmanned Aircraft Systems in Precision Agriculture - West Coast Nut

Farmers continue to turn to new technology to help them manage and produce a healthy crop. One such technology, Unmanned Aircraft Systems are becoming increasingly popular in farming applications. In California alone, an estimated 1 in 10 farmers and 1 in 5 principle farm operators currently utilize UAS tech as part of their farming operations.

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are increasingly being utilized in farming applications throughout California’s Central Valley. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) anticipates that the adoption of UAS technology will continue to dramatically increase over the next several years.

Your Pecan Tree's Piggy Bank & Water Budgeting - Pecan South Magazine

"There is no more important aspect of the management of pecans than applying the right amount of water at the right time," Dr. Richard Heerema with NMSU Cooperative Extension Service wrote in our May 2020 issue. The water budgeting approach can help growers do just that.

As we move into the 2020 growing season, we should take some time to discuss how to know when to irrigate and how to know how much water to apply—irrigation scheduling. There are several different methods that growers can use to schedule irrigations, some better than others. Some producers may pre...

Your fungicide spray program can fight pecan scab and decrease production costs - Pecan South Magazine

Facing a difficult pecan market and continued uncertainty, #pecangrowers everywhere are looking to cut production costs while maintaining crop size. Dr. Lenny Wells UGA Extension
explores how producers can cut the cost of their fungicide spray program and still protect their trees from #pecanscab in a low market year.

Usually spraying trees 8 times or more, growers now reevaluate their fungicide spray program for pecan scab to cut costs in a low market year.

A mirid plant bug has been observed in high numbers on the catkins of some central Arizona pecan orchards. The Arizona Pest Management Center published this rapid communication—accessible through the link below—to share what experts know about this pest. Growers are encouraged to review this information with their pest control advisor to determine what action, if any, is required.

Currently, there is no scientific evidence this pest causes significant economic losses in pecan.

Farm State of Mind - Stronger Together

Farming is demanding enough, without natural disasters, a pandemic, trade wars, market losses, depressed prices, and other factors. With all that's going on in the world, farmers and farm families are facing more stress and mental health struggles than ever before.

Recognizing May as #MentalHealthMonth, the American Farm Bureau Federation launched a comprehensive, easy-to-use online directory of resources for #farmers, ranchers and their families who are experiencing stress and mental health challenges.

As any farmer or rancher can tell you, farm life can be demanding and stressful. It’s reaching a critical stage with coronavirus impacts on top of trade wars, natural disasters, depressed commodity prices, labor shortages and other factors.

Walnut Caterpillar: Early detection is the key to prevent economic loss - Pecan South Magazine

Generally considered the most important pecan-feeding insects, the pecan nut casebearer and pecan weevil can have a tremendous impact on your burgeoning crop. But there's one other pest that growers should monitor: the walnut caterpillar.

During the growing season, there are several major nut feeding insects—such as pecan nut casebearer and pecan weevil—whose occurrence in an orchard can be anticipated and treatments are applied based on damage threat. Although these two pests are generally considered the two most important pecan...

Micronutrients for pecans, just a little makes all the difference - Pecan South Magazine

Macronutrients—such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium—tend to garner most of the attention when fertilizers are discussed. And even some micronutrients, like zinc, get their fair share of attention (four articles in Pecan South in 2020). It's time we discuss the other soil-derived micronutrients that your pecan trees need to grow.

Pecan trees require many micronutrients to grow normally. The lesser discussed micronutrients for pecans are just as important to tree health.

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.
