UGA’s Pecan School in Session March 4

Pecan producers in Georgia can take advantage of a popular extension course covering the basics of growing, nurturing, and harvesting America’s Nut on March 4.

Three researchers from the University of Georgia will lead the bi-annual UGA Pecan School beginning 8 a.m. at the university’s Tifton campus. Previously known as Pecan Scout School, the event connects members of the public with some of the nation’s top agricultural researchers to discuss pecan cultivars, fertilization, and the management of insects and disease.
