We recently purchased some acreage and would like to plant a pecan orchard on part of it. We don't have any experience with growing pecans and don't expect to make a living from it. We're doing it more for the ag exemption and, eventually, a little extra income as well as beautiful trees. What books or other resources can you recommend?

I found a few links which may be helpful to you. Also, you may want to research the best types of pecans for the area and for what you are wanting...
