Pecan Field Day at Vidalia Research Center



On October 7th growers gathered Thursday morning at the Vidalia Onion Research Center for another pecan field day. Andrew Sawyer, the Southeast District Area Pecan Agent hosted a short field day and graciously provided lunch for all the attendees afterwards.

The field day was a huge success with 66 attendees, available pesticide credits, and 7 different pecan varieties onsite to examine. The topics that Andrew Sawyer discussed are below along with the information packets he provided for everyone at the field day.

Topics Include:

  • Terra-Sorb-UGA Fertilizer Trial
  • Insecticide Drench Trial
  • Pecan Budmoth Efficacy and Timing Trial
  • Drip vs. Microsprinkler Irrigation Set Up
  • Soil Moisture Sensors
  • Low-Input Varieties
  • Herbicide Options for Young Trees

Fall Field Day

Self-Guided Fall Field Day at Nut Tree Pecan Company

The 2021 GPGA Fall Field Day took place this year on September 13-17 and was hosted by Putt Wetherbee at Nut Tree Pecan Company located near Albany, Visitors had the entire week to tour four orchards, in addition to the pecan tree nursery and the cleaning plant. Whether we are talking about an unexpected tropical storm or global health crises, GPGA's top priority is our growers and industry supporters.

Although circumstances altered our plans yet again, we were able to present a "self-guided" Fall Field Day, providing polished and engaging content instead of a solely virtual event. While we had to adjust our delivery method, our ultimate goal remained the same; to ensure growers received purposeful, educational content in a clear, defined and easy to access manner, thus The Pecan Grower Special Edition Guidebook was born!

This event and all that went along with it could not have been made possible without our loyal sponsors. Without their support, publishing and printing the Guidebook would not have been possible. Last but not least, a sincere Thank you is in order for Putt Wetherbee and his team at Nut Tree Pecan Company. Putt's passion and eagerness to share his data and best practices for the betterment of the industry is unmatched. Thank you form all of us at GPGA for all your efforts!
