Fruit and Nut Diseases
In Mississippi, pecan and a number of fruits are produced commercially. Pecan trees are a common backyard tree, and many fruit trees and plants are also planted in backyards. Fruit production, whether for commercial or personal use, is not always an easy task. A variety of disorders, insects, diseases, and pests may cause problems during any given season and may damage a crop leading to reduced or poor-quality yields.
The information available on the linked pages is intended to provide valuable information about pecan and fruit diseases and management for the home gardener and commercial grower. All MSU Extension publications that contain information on or related to disease management in pecans and fruits are listed (and linked) on the Fruit and Nut Disease Publications page. Events at which vegetable disease information will be presented are listed on the Fruit and Nut Disease Event Calendar page.
