PGF’s unique technology produces the best container trees for our clients
We are certified by the USDA, TDA, and the NMDA. We grow our pecan trees in a soil-less media which helps prevent disease and insect pressure in the orchard (nematode, japanese beetle, pecan weevil and fire ant free)
PGF hand-grades several times a year, ensuring only the strongest trees are produced. We are providing a tree in a container that has 100% of its root system vs. roughly 10-15% of a root system from a bare-root tree.
PGF trees have been pampered for almost 3 years with fertilizer and proper irrigation techniques. Having 100% of their root system, PGF trees are not stressed when transplanted to your orchard and have historically gained production a year ahead of bare-root trees.
It is easier to handle and unload 2.5 gal container tree vs. a typical 6 gal, it’s also more efficient for transportation (2,500 per load vs. 1,000). You’ll have a smaller hole to dig at planting and our soil-less media is significantly lighter than soil.
PGF trees allow flexibility for the farmer to adapt to weather delays at planting and manage costs.
Savings on the cost of buying and planting the original tree. Savings on fertilizing and irrigating a dead tree. Savings on the cost of buying and planting a new tree. Loss of income due to a year delay of pecan production for those trees that died.
