2016 pecan crop struggling in Louisiana, nationwide

LSU AgCenter pecan specialist Charlie Graham displays a handful of pecans on Nov. 3 at the AgCenter Pecan Research and Extension Station in Shreveport. After harvest, pecans are dumped into wooden containers, which are then moved into this room to be dried. Air is blown into the bottoms of the containers through the black hoses seen in this photo.
