Pest management is an essential component of any pecan operation.
First, you’ll need to identify the tree cultivars you manage and the diseases and insect damage that reduce their productivity. Then you can build a proper spray program as part of your integrated pest management program, which focuses on long-term prevention of pests or their damage.
Proper use of herbicides can help you decrease labor and more efficiently manage weeds on your orchard floor and vegetation-free areas. As you make your plan, it is important to know how to spray the right chemicals at the right time. It is also important to rotate chemicals so you can safeguard their effectiveness.
