Which varieties are Type1 and which are Type2? What else will polinate a Pawnee, other than kanza and Lakota?
doug h on May 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While Type I and Type II are important variables, you also have to consider overlap in bloom times, which is why we recommend either Kanza (Type II) or Lakota (Type II) for compatibility with Pawnee (Type I); however, Colby (Type II) could work and Starking Southern Giant (Type II) could work.
I live in the Missouri Ozarks and the PH is normally around 7 and the trees for this area PH is recommended to be 6.0- 6.5. What are the recommendations?
BillB on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can either try acidifying your soil with garden sulfur to bring the pH into the 6.0-6.5 range, or just plant the tree. Pecan trees don't seem to be terribly picky around here, since they grow well with a soil pH in the 6.0-7.0 range.
