In May 2016, the U.S Department of Agriculture approved a Federal Marketing Order to fund a promotion campaign for pecans. This is similar to the funding and promotion already provided for other nuts in bulk such as almonds and pistachios.
According the article “Are Americans About to Go Nuts for Pecans?” in Modern Farmer, pecan farms across the south and southwestern United States have planted at least 50,000 new acres of pecan trees in the last five years. This is in addition to growers managing their existing orchards better in the hopes of increased prices for pecans. This Federal Marketing Order has created excitement for the industry and the hope that the demand for pecans can launch sales into realms where almonds exist now.
However, the biggest benefit of the Federal Marketing Order might be simply to increase the public’s awareness about pecans including the many health benefits they provide.
