Fall pecan tree fertilizing

Asked October 19, 2015, 11:56 AM EDT

We have several northern cultivar pecan trees here at our residence near Strasburg. The northern pecan growers blog spot recommends an October application of nitrogen. http://northernpecans.blogspot.com/search?q=Fertilize+in+the+fall Does this make sense here in PA? The blogspot writer is in the Kansas and Missouri area. Thanks, Herb Groff

Here is a link to a publication from the University of Oklahoma extension

Fertilizing Pecan and Fruit Trees, It gives a schedule depending on the age of the tree.

Eileen as usual has given you some wonderful information. She's great. I however came across a couple other publications that may also be of help. Here they are.
just look at the fertilizer sections.
