CERVANTES-VAZQUEZ, María Gabriela et al. Comparative analysis of pecan orchards (Carya illinoensis Koch) in the Comarca Lagunera. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2018, vol.9, n.1, pp.25-35. ISSN 2007-0934.

The cultivation of pecan nuts in Mexico and the United States of America is an important activity and the production of both countries represents more than 90% of world production, with the United States of America being the main producer and Mexico the second. However, the problem faced by producers is the broad intermediation in marketing and the lack of knowledge of the pecan nut market. The objective of this research work is to analyze the conditions of nut production and sale in pecan walnut orchards that include variables such as surface, varieties, yields, infrastructure and marketing aspects, with which better organization decisions can be made for the production and sale of the product. For the above, 24 surveys were applied to producers of different orchards taking into account the roster of nogaleros of the region of 396 in the year 2014. The sample was divided into three strata according to its production area. The results show that the production of tons per hectare in the three strata is higher than that reported nationally, that the Wichita variety is the most used in combination with varieties such as Western. Likewise, producers with lower yields receive less financial support for production, concluding that support programs for these producers must be defined based on the technical productive conditions that each garden size handles.
