Farm Press: Georgia reclaims a top position two years after the storm

According to the Southeast Farm Press, “With the 2020 harvest kicking off, all signs show Georgia’s pecan crop will be the largest in more than a decade and set the state back on top.” I’ve been hearing reports of pecan trees with such heavy loads of nuts that producers have been concerned that strong winds from any of the recent storms could have knocked down their yields and caused tree limb damage, but so far not much loss has been reported, at least in places I have looked. The result is one of the best potential yields of pecans in the last decade, unless a late tropical storm causes damage before they can be harvested. A lot of the credit goes to the producers who have been working hard to get their orchards back in shape after the impacts of Irma and Michael in recent years. You can read more here.
