Drought and a cooler than expected summer will likely lead to a smaller pecan crop this year, across the South.
Pecan trees usually produce a big crop one year and fewer nuts the next.
Much of the growing area, which runs from the Carolinas to New Mexico, is in the grip of a drought that began in 1998.
Last season was a bountiful one for Southern farmers, so a drop off was expected.
