American pecan industry has struggled to get American pecans into China

While the Almond industry has been able to maintain and even grow exports to China, the American pecan industry has struggled to get American pecans into China since the onset of the trade war, which left the door wide open for Mexico to fill the gap. 

Overall the crop in Mexico this year has been a good one, with some areas reporting minimal amounts of high wind damage, and losses. Average quality across the northern region has been around 58% or higher kernel yield with good color quality. Western Schley, Wichita, and Pawnee are the dominant varieties , mostly Western Schley and Wichita, across much of Mexico. Water issues are still a factor in this part of the world just as in the US just north of these producing regions. source: Pecan Report
