Fruits, Nuts, & Vegetables - Insect Management in Arkansas

Fruit production adds to the local and state economy, and diversifies the agriculture of the state. Peaches, pecans and grapes represent the greatest acreage and cash value of specialty fruit crops in Arkansas. In 2012 production of these three crops was: peaches (1200 acres, $4.6 million), pecans (6,700 acres; $2.9 million) and grapes (1400 acres, $1.2 million). Blueberries and blackberries each constitute approximately 300 acres. Production of the major specialty fruits has increased in recent years, due to greater interest in locally grown produce and food safety. Most fruit grown in Arkansas is marketed and sold within the state. Each of the crops has its own specialized pest management needs.
