Journal:
Citrus and Deciduous Fruit and Nut Research Report
Abstract:
In 1986 a replicated study of eight varieties of pecans were planted on the Safford Agricultural Center at an elevation of 2954 feet above sea level. The objective of the study was to determine which varieties would produce best under the saline conditions found in the Safford valley. This paper contains yield, kernel percentages and other nut characteristics found in the study during the 1997 and 1998 harvest seasons. Cheyenne and WO-3 were the highest yielding varieties in 1997 and 1998, respectively. The respective yields were 1894 and 2286 pounds per acre.
