Question: I have some pecan trees in my yard. The fruit of the nut is never good and looks as if it’s rotten. Can you tell me what it is or what to do about it?

Answer: Pecan scab, a fungus disease, may be the culprit. Fungicide spray should begin two weeks after budbreak. We’d also suggest consulting your county agent through the Cooperative Extension Service. Be sure to burn old hulls and infested nuts in order to control shuckworm and nut weevils.
