"Pecans are very important to New Mexico," said John White, director of the association. "The New Mexico pecan benefits from our ideal growing conditions. We're usually one of the top states in terms of pecan production."

Weather not ideal for New Mexico pecan crop.

New Mexico State University's Cooperative Extension Service will host the 2014 Western Pecan Growers Association conference and trade show at Hotel Encanto, 705 S. Telshor Blvd. in Las Cruces. The parking situation is limited around the hotel and overflow parking can use the Mesilla Valley Mall Designated Parking Area and take the hotel shuttle to the hotel and back.

The statewide pecan crop generates a significant amount of agricultural economic activity each year in New Mexico.
