Pecan Pie? Order a Slice – or Three!
Stewardship Initiative -
Responsible use of crop protection products has helped to triple pecan per tree output!
Pecans are a long-standing American tradition, having been established here in the mid-1800s. Unfortunately, pecan trees, which have a productive life of between 100-200 years, also have a long history of falling victim to disease.
Thanks to advances in crop protection products and their distribution, pecan trees now get the safeguard they need against fungus and pests. Not only have these products stopped widespread losses (between 50-100 percent), yields from pecan trees have increased dramatically, tripling output and ensuring affordable, available pecans. So go ahead - order another slice of pie!
