IOWA PARK – A Fruit Tree Clinic and Pecan Grafting Demo will be conducted April 27 by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

The event is free and open to the public.

The presenter will be Tim Hunter, Master Gardener and former coordinator of the Texas A&M AgriLife Research Station’s pecan production center at Iowa Park. The event will be from 6:30-8 p.m. in Hunter’s orchard at 1772 Peterson Road S. at Iowa Park.

“We receive many questions from homeowners about their fruit and nut trees, and now is the time for them to take some action,” said David Graf, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent in Wichita County.

Hunter will discuss pruning techniques for production, variety selection and planting, pest and fertility management, and blackberries and other berries. Graf said attendees are welcome to ask questions or bring plant samples with problems.

Those planning to attend should RSVP before April 26 to wichita-tx@tamu.edu or by calling the AgriLife Extension-Wichita County office, 940-716-8610.
