Texas Pecans: Light Deliveries, Harvest to Remain Steady

    Deliveries by growers to delivery points of Improved varieties were very light. Demand was fairly good for good quality pecans. Cheyenne, Wichita, Pawnee and Choctaw are currently being harvested, as well as Natives. Harvesting is expected to remain about steady during the upcoming week.

    The weather forecast for the next week calls for low temperatures ranging from the upper 30s to upper 60s, and highs from the low 60s to low 80s. There is a chance of precipitation most days during the upcoming week, with the greatest chance being on Saturday, December 12 and Sunday, December 13, where there is as high as an 80% chance of precipitation in some areas.

    Buying interest displayed by end users was fairly good for in-shell, gift pack use, and moderate for commercial sheller use as shellers utilize inventories on hand or make purchases from other production areas or wait for additional availability of nuts. Trading was moderate for in-shell and gift pack uses.

    Prices paid to growers from Tuesday, December 1 through Tuesday, December 8, 2015 at buyers delivery point or F.O.B. the orchard including direct sales to end users, cents per pound in-shell of generally good quality in lots of 20,000 pounds or less unless otherwise stated.
