The low nut production could come from lack of zinc.What part of the country are you in? I have three huge pecan trees (40-50 feet) in my backyard. Because of the squirrels, I have to pull up new pecan trees every year. They even grow in the gutters of my house. I've never had to feed them.
I've found that they don't produce pecans consistantly from year to year. Depending on the rain I think. Some years there are so many that it sounds like its raining as they fall (mostly on my car). Some years there are so few that the squirrels eat them all while they are still green.
Most pecans will do well in a wide range of soils.The low nut production could come from lack of zinc.
When I was a kid, my grandfather used to drive nails into the trunks of the pecan trees in his yard.
It's a lot easier, overall, to tend to the health of the soil than to tend to the health of the trees. You can plant Bocking 14 at the future drip line and alfalfa inside the circle. Graze every time the alfalfa get taller than 18". Graze it down to 6".Hello to all. I have over the last 2 years bought 4 grafted pecan trees and i would like to feed them organically any suggestions. Thanks Cory
