Georgia Pecan Prices: Light Deliveries Expected to Pick Up Next Week

    Pecan harvest shaking.

    The weather for the remainder of this week shows rather mild and moderate temps in the 80s and cool evenings with little or no rain until the weekend or next week throughout the state. Growers are quickly getting the orchards harvest ready and picking up as much as they can while the weather is cooperating. Some chance of rain is expected next week.

    Sales are very slow this week and were not enough to establish market prices as growers are in harvest mode while waiting to see which way the market will turn as prices were higher than the established contracts signed earlier and buyers have held back making offers that are suitable for a good sale.

    Door prices have not been established yet as some businesses are not open until this weekend or next week for business. A small amount of Pawnee were sold. Growers are working on the remainder of Pawnee to dry out as well as Oconee and Creek from some younger orchards.

    Most growers are waiting to turn on the coolers and dryers due to the high cost of use and are letting the pecans dry naturally as long as the humidity is under control they can wait to use fans as well to save on extra production costs.

    Deliveries were very light for Pawnee and most growers will be ready to offer their pecans later this week and early next week.

    Most of the small shellers and buyers of yard tree lots are not yet open for business and there are no established prices at this time.

    Prices paid to growers (late afternoon Thursday, October 7, 2021 thru late afternoon Thursday, October 14, 2021) 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.

    Lots over 20,000 pounds including truckloads
