County Pecan Production Meetings to be Virtual in January, February, and March 2021

Below are a few words from Dr. Lenny Wells about upcoming virtual pecan meetings…

As a result of COVID, we will be forced to hold virtual rather than in-person county pecan production meetings this year. I know this comes as a disappointment to many but this is being done in the interest of everyone’s safety.

The plan is to host these meetings via Zoom on three separate dates so that county agents and growers can have multiple opportunities to participate as they wish. Dr. Angel Acebes, Andrew Sawyer, Jason Brock, and myself will each give presentations and will be available for questions over Zoom. Tentative dates for the meetings are as follows:

January 21 —6 pm

February 9—9 am

March 9—6 pm

The January and March meetings will be held at 6:00 pm and the February meeting will be held at 9:00 am so that people have options of the best times that may work for them.

We are still working out the details of setting things up for this with regard to registration, pesticide credits, etc., but I will be posting more information here as the plan comes together.
