New Website Presence
The website you're viewing has been
recently re-designed (2010). It will be updated and refreshed as
new promotions and research are conducted.
The Texas Pecan Board partnered with Canola Oil on this campaign. Family Features sends out feature stories to newspapers, magazines, and web sites across the country that they can use to fill space in their publications. Our story featured a spread made with pecans and canola, with emphasis on including necessary healthy fats in your diet. The feature was pickedup by publications from California to the Virgin Islands, and reached an estimated audience of 5 million subscribers. This is an amazing return for our investment.
Is the Texas Pecan Checkoff Program Working?
Anybody that writes a check or even thinks about writing a
check to the Texas Pecan Board has to wonder if they will ever
see a return on their investment. The Texas Pecan Board is
made up a growers elected by growers and they have asked that
question themselves. In fact they were so concerned about the
answer that they hired Texas A&M University researchers to
answer the question, "Is the Texas Pecan Checkoff Program Working?"
Dr. Marco Palma answers this important question in the following article.
