Heavy Pecan Crops

The Associate Press reports that the USDA is expecting this year’s pecan crops to reach 309 million pounds. This is 60 percent higher than 2008’s 193.9 million pounds.
Although this leaves an abundance of pecans for the upcoming holiday season, major rain in the top pecan-growing states could lessen the quality of the crops and the price at the store.
Georgia is the country’s biggest pecan-producing state and has suffered heavy rains and flooding in the past month.
