2017 Pecan Grafting Schools


Grafting is a skill every pecan grower should master. This Spring we will be holding 3 grafting schools that will provide you with the opportunity to learn several pecan grafting techniques and practice those techniques under the watchful eyes of an experienced grafter. All grafting schools will be held rain or shine. The schools are free and everyone is invited.
