    To delay leafing out, paint the entire top of the tree. As a result, care is taken to propagate a clone only from superior individuals, and in the case of citruswhere mutation is especially common, further precautions are necessary. Figure 3. In the light crop or "off" years, the N supplied by the clover alone would be adequate for optimum production. This article treats the principles and practices of fruit cultivation.

    Adjustments should be made before watering in trees. Crows are also destructive. For every inch over 6 inches, an additional pounds per acre of dry matter are produced. If clover is seeded prior to harvest, seeds may be removed from the orchard floor during the sweeping and harvesting process. But even in this last example, one has to take care to avoid the stinging nettle from overtaking the intended beneficiary crop, and one must watch for pests that take up residence on the ample foliage. Clover normally requires adequate water, which makes it best suited to solid-set sprinkler irrigated orchards.

    Therefore, a 60 percent stand of crimson clover can provide about Clover can replace from 50 to percent of synthetic N applied to pecan orchards, depending on the pecan crop load in a given year. Here is where sharing experiences with other pecan growers is so important. Fertilizing orchards utilizing legumes at the wrong time can also lead to aggressive growth of grasses and other competitive species, which can lead to shading out of the legume crop.

Pecan in California

The most acreage of cultivated improved pecan production is in Georgia, with significant cultivation also in the southern tier of states from Alabama to California.

Full irrigation with solid-set sprinklers allows for a greater selection. One other thing that I would implement immediately is an effective pest monitoring program. Establishment should be completed as soon as possible following pecan harvest, preferably in November or December.

The center tree should be a precocious, temporary tree to be removed as the orchard becomes crowded.

PECAN INDUSTRY

Right now, the trees are still reeling from the terrible Oklahoma Practical methods of developing a commercial pecan orchard book storm of that mangled many of the major limbs.

More limbs. A good rule of thumb is to leave the topmost tiny root at ground level. It is important to recognize that the ability of the legume plant to "fix" nitrogen is destroyed by the presence of readily available N in the soil. The tree, one of the most widely distributed trees in the state, is native to counties and is grown commercially in some thirty additional counties.

Previous research indicates a time lag between legume establishment and the response of the pecan tree. The first thinning should be done onthe diagonal, removing alternate trees in each row and column. Records indicate that the nut was exported from the state before One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a legume for the orchard is the soil type and the amount of water available to the legume throughout the year.

By the s pecans were being divided into two general kinds, natives and improved varieties. This article places further arbitrary limitations in that it does not encompass a number of very important perennial fruit crops covered elsewhere, including vanilla, coffee, and the oil-producing tung tree and oil palm see coffeefat and oil processingwineand articles on individual plants [e.

This makes it valuable for weed suppression as well as a good N source. The inintial thinning should take place between 16 and 22 years after planting or when50 percent of the orchard floor is shaded Practical methods of developing a commercial pecan orchard book mid-day.

The census reported a total of 1, pecan trees one-third improved varieties on 11, farms. This process of clearing took years, for a couple of reasons. To prevent air pockets, pack soil around roots as the trees are placed in the trench.

A multipurpose fungicide spray program will be needed during the growing season. Pecans were shelled on a commercial basis before by G. Sandy sites will need to be re-seeded sooner than loamy or clay soils, so soil type should be taken into consideration when estimating the need for re-establishment.

Clark, A. Circumstances often make immediate planting impossible. Perennial legumes break down quickly; however, their root systems remain tough and fibrous, contributing to the accumulation of organic matter. After watering or rain, check heeled-in trees to make sure roots are not exposed.

The subject of fruit and nut production deals with intensive culture of perennial plants, the fruits of which have economic significance a nut is a fruit, botanically. Level the soil around the tree but do not pack the soil down around the tree Figure 5.

To delay leafing out, paint the entire top of the tree. The amount of nitrogen removed by the crop in proportion to that applied is often far less with tree crops than with more traditional crops; therefore, nitrates leaching into groundwater can be serious in orchard situations.

More leaves are needed for large nuts. Lay trees in the trench in a slanted position so they will not be blown over by wind. Notice the bend between rootstock and scion.PREFACE. In the horticultural development of the country, new fruits, new groups of fruits, new fruit industries are coming into prominence.

Our native fruits in particular are now receiving, in many parts of the country, a larger share of the attention which they have always merited, and none has proven itself more worthy of careful study and painstaking care than the pecan.
