Audio: US pecan crop takes a big hit from Michael

Here’s an audio story on the huge decreases in pecan production that happened in 2018 due to the impacts of Hurricane Michael (as well as Irma in 2017, which also blew down a lot of trees). In Georgia it cut the production from 105 million pounds in 2017 to 56 million pounds in 2018, and in the US for a whole production was reduced by 27 percent. You can listen to the story at Southeast Ag Radio Network at http://southeastagnet.com/2019/03/20/huge-decline-pecan-production/.
