Pecan workshop offers key information for new enterprises
To help provide timely information about starting and maintaining a pecan enterprise, The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a pecan workshop August 16 at North Central Texas College. The workshop will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Little Theatre, located at 1525 West California Street in Gainesville.
Noble Foundation consultants will detail how and what it takes to start a new pecan enterprise. Participants will learn about pecan fertilization, pest management and the 2012 market outlook. There will be an additional discussion on the future of the pecan industry.
“This workshop provides a good overview of pecan management for those who are contemplating starting their own enterprise,” said Charles Rohla, Ph.D., Noble Foundation pecan specialist. “A review of these fundamentals can also help those agricultural producers who have pecans on their property, but aren’t quite sure how to oversee the resource.”
The workshop is offered at no charge, but preregistration is requested. For additional information or to register, please visit www.noble.org/AgEvents or contact Tracy Cumbie at 580.224.6292.
