Keep your eyes open. Pecan Weevil could devastate El Paso County and Southern New Mexico’s pecan crop. If you see anything like this, please call us.

NMDA’s Agricultural and Environmental Services Division works to protect the state’s agriculture industry from pecan weevil. Not native to New Mexico, pecan weevil is a late season pest that does not harm the overall health of a pecan tree, but can cause severe economic damage to the crop. If left untreated, an infestation can eventually cause up to 40% crop loss. NMDA works with residential and commercial pecan growers to manage affected areas, as well as guide regional efforts for pecan weevil quarantine. #NMDAintheCommunity

It’s almost that time of year. The Western Schley “Western” variety makes up the majority of El Paso County pecan acreage.

These ’Westerns’ are making a great effort. Some shuck split already. Good size and fill.

Proud to have such a diverse group of volunteers providing education to our community. Thank you, El Paso MG President-Elect Ignacio Muñoz for leading this segment.

Para este video, el vivero Eastside Discount Nursery pudo dar la bienvenida a nuestro equipo a sus instalaciones, que tienen varios acres llenos de los árboles y plantas más sorprendentes y aromáticos. Caminar por las islas de plantas fue una experiencia propia, lo cual recomendamos encarecidamente. Nuestro equipo a menudo habla sobre estar al aire libre y cómo eso puede ayudar a lidiar con la ansiedad, sin embargo, durante este tiempo queríamos alentar a los participantes a que intenten participar en actividades al aire libre poniendo a disposición algunas herramientas y algunos consejos fáciles de algunos jardineros expertos con mucha experiencia. Discutimos algunas plantas que son útiles para la salud mental, cuál es la mejor manera de usarlas y mantenerlas en casa.

Bringing practical, relevant, and research-based education is what Extension does best. We couldn't do this without partnerships and people. Thanks to Emergence Health Network and El Paso Master Gardeners

Did you know simply having a plant on your desk or in your home can reduce stress, make you feel more energized and able to think clearly? Did you know those who suffer from anxiety and depression have found gardening and caring for plans to be incredibly beneficial? Join us as we team up with the Master Gardeners and the staff at Eastside Discount Nursery to explore these benefits.

FYI

Pecan development at Cimarron Valley Research Station on September 10, 2020. Maramec & Giles are filling, Pawnee & Kanza are getting tight, Peruque has maybe 10% at shuck split. Until the nuts are completely full, irrigation/rainfall plays a big part in quality. Two inches a week is needed during filling.

This applies to the El Paso Valley!!!

There’s an awful lot going on underground in a pecan orchard. Here are a couple pictures of mycorrhizal fungi from our ongoing root microbiome study. Stay tuned for more!

Something we did today in El Paso County.

Sampling roots and soil for our new grant to study the microbiome of pecan trees. We hope to find new and exciting ways to harness beneficial fungi and bacteria populations on, in, and around the roots for enhancing tree health!

A little related to the "backyard basics" workshops a while back-- where does one find if there are regulations on backyard chickens in El Paso county? I know some neighbors have them, but I don't want to walk up, knock on the door and say "Hey, I want to have chickens and guineas, what are the rules around here?" *grin* Yes, I tried searching teh county website, and online results just tell me what El Paso city does!
