Establishing a pecan orchard

Asked November 15, 2016, 2:02 PM EST

Please show me where to find information as to how to establish a pecan orchard from the very beginning. I have 5 acres left after selling my farm and want to establish an orchard of pecan trees. I need watering grids and tree planing grids and cost issues. Please send me information. Nancy Hoke phone 214-923-6076

In addition I would suggest that you go to the Texas A & M AgriLife Bookstore and purchase a Pecan Handbook.

Let me know if we can answer additional questions.

Good luck!!
