Budbreak on ‘Cape Fear’ pecan March 20, 2021-Crisp County, GA

Budbreak has arrived for south Georgia pecans. I noticed a few Cape Fear and Elliot trees beginning to break bud this weekend. I am sure over the next week or two we will see this progress more and the orchards will soon take on that lime green hue of spring to kick off the new growing season.

As most of you are aware, the UGA pecan team conducted our county production meetings virtually this year by Zoom. Thank you to all of those who participated. Your pesticide credit hours from the meetings have been sent to the GA Dept of Ag as of last week. If you missed the meetings or would like to go back and hear the presentations they are now archived on YouTube and are available at the links below:
