The Texas Pecan Short Course is a comprehensive class aimed at preparing individuals to enter the pecan business. All aspects of commercial pecan production are covered from basic botany to tree planting, integrated pest management, marketing, etc.

The class setting is the Department of Horticultural Science's HortTREC facility, a field laboratory located in the Brazos River Bottom and near the Texas A&M University teaching and research pecan orchards. Class instructors will engage participants in the most current information for Texas pecan orchard development and management, including hands-on instruction of orchard establishment, sunlight management, tree training and grafting.

Participants should wear warm clothing, because of the winter season during which this class is taught. Outdoor field trips to the pecan orchards will be taken, so appropriate footwear should be part of participant attire as well.
