Sorghum is a poaceae grass that is hardy and adaptable. This crop is grown for food, silage, biofuel, and more. Key characteristics of sorghum:

Pick a well-drained spot. Deep, healthy, somewhat acidic soil suits pecan trees. Make sure the site gets 6-8 hours of sunlight daily.

1. Selecting a Suitable Location

Choose pecan trees that thrive in your climate. Common types are 'Desirable,' 'Elliott,' and 'Stuart.'

2. Choosing Pecan Varieties

Dormant pecan trees should be planted in late winter or early spring. Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the root system without crowding or bending it. Put the tree at the nursery depth and backfill with dirt.

3. Planting

Pecan trees need room to mature. Plant them 30–40 feet apart.

4. Spacing

Water regularly, especially at the beginning. Deep root development requires deep watering.

5. Watering

Before the tree grows, apply a balanced fertiliser in spring. Zinc foliar sprays benefit pecan trees.

6. Fertilizing

For a sturdy scaffold, prune young trees. Remove dead or diseased wood and keep the canopy open for sunshine.

7. Pruning

Mulch the tree base to conserve moisture, reduce weeds, and regulate soil temperature.

8. Mulching

Aphids, pecan weevils, and scab should be monitored. Control pests with insecticides or organic means.

9. Pest and Disease Management

Most pecan trees produce nuts 6-10 years after planting. Harvest when the outer husk splits to reveal the mature pecan.
