Louisiana Pecan Crop Coming up Short

The state of Louisiana has a long history with pecans, in fact Louisiana along the Mississippi river is where the native pecan trees to this continent were first discovered. Louisiana is one of the states listed in the commercial production areas for the new pecan marketing order. This year’s crop however seems to have suffered dearly to adverse weather conditions. Dr. Charles Graham of the Louisiana State University Ag Center was recently interviewed by the local KTBS on the conditions of this year’s crop and gave a report of his findings.
