Intercropping pecans with soybeans
In this photo taken a few years ago, you can see recently grafted trees, an oat intercrop, and the grass alley between the double pecan rows The pecan trees are planted 40 ft apart within each row. Trees in adjacent rows are offset so that the distance between the double row is 22.5 feet and trees are 30 feet apart on the diagonal. The space between each set of double rows allows at least 50 feet for grain crop production.
