Pecan Growers Association
Be a part of the NCPGA
The NC Pecan Grower's Association enjoys the full support of the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, NC State University's Cooperative Extension Service, and other resources throughout the pecan growing region.
To meet its mission as an educational organization, NCPGA provides subscriptions to the two leading pecan publications at reduced cost. The "Pecan Grower" is a quarterly publication by the Georgia Pecan Growers Association and the monthly "Pecan South" is published by the Texas Pecan Growers Association. The world's foremost pecan authorities regularly provide articles for these two publications.
Members participate in and benefit from the marketing efforts coordinated and directed by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services marketing specialist serving the Association.
Members receive the "NUTTY NEWS," the NCPGA quarterly newsletter. The "NUTTY NEWS" provides in-depth coverage of Association activities. It also serves to update members of developments occurring on the national scene.
Members benefit from close association with growers, research scientists, and major equipment dealers throughout the pecan-growing region. Some NCPGA members are active, visible, and serve as officers and directors in the Southeastern Pecan Growers Association, which serves the world's largest pecan-growing region.
- Members are authorized to serve in the role of officer or director for the Association. Members have full voting rights in Association activities.
- Members can use "NUTTY NEWS" to advertise or communicate relevant information to other members.
- Members can network with nearly 100 growers managing approximately 20,000 trees.
