   Though Hurricane Michael has forced Georgia pecan producers to re-plant significant acres in southwest Georgia, southeast and northeast Georgia are also planting new acreage in pecan due to lower prices in forestry, livestock and hay agriculture. Newly planted pecan trees are under significant stress factors from bare-root planting to early pests. Products which increase the growth of the trees aid in the survival rate and early production of nuts. Both new products on the market and older products recently labeled for pecans may provide benefit in growth of young trees. This trial observed pecan tree growth on three sites in Georgia following the application of imidacloprid (Admire), flupyradifurone (Sivanto), spirotetramat (Movento), fluopyram (Velum Prime) just after planting. No difference was observed in both caliper and height in the first year. This may be due to only one year of data, to fully determine the impact of these products more data will be collected over the next two years.
