Description: Careful attention to walnut trees could pay off in nut yields. Nutrient management and improved nut varieties can make a big difference in black walnut nut production. This was the theme of the 2002 American Black Walnut Conference in Springfield, MO. The conference was sponsored by the Center For Advancement of American Black Walnut and Southwest Missouri RC&D (Resource Conservation and Development, Inc.). This year's conference featured a tour of several landowner properties where improved nut varieties of walnut trees are being managed for nut production. One of the goals of the Center For Advancement of American Black Walnut, said center director Jim Jones, "is to plant 5,000 acres of improved black walnut nut trees for nut production by the end of the year 2007." Producers are adding to those acres by converting their stands developed from seeds of wild trees to stands of grafted trees of improved varieties.
