Pecan yields reduced by weather in 2015

Pecan yields this year are likely to be lower than expected due to less than ideal weather conditions during the growing and harvest seasons, according to an article by Clint Thompson of the University of Georgia published in Growing Georgia.  The wet, cloudy and warm conditions at harvest led to a deterioration in crop quality due to sprouting in the kernels as well as less filling of the nuts than usual, according to UGA expert Lenny Wells.
