Prices paid for unshelled pecans are based on the "point" price. This simply refers to the wholesale price of one lb of shelled pecans. Yield is used to determine the final value.
Here's an example:

Given the point price is $4.00/lb

We take a one pound sample of unshelled pecans from my place, crack them, shell them
and weigh the finished product.
Product yielded .33lbs
.33 times $4.00=$1.32
This should be my price.

Now we go to MrsC's house, take a sample from her place.
She yields out at .50 or half a pound of product per one lb of unshelled pecans.
Her price would be:
.50 times $4.00=$2.00/lb for her pecans.

It seldom works that way unless you have a very large operation and can afford to hold large lots for extended periods.

Labor is a "labor of love" with no pay. If you wanna scrap and pick between machine pickins' life is good!
Hunt from before daylight to 9.
Pick pecans on your knees for six hours like a madman, till 3. Then go take a stand, again. Pays all the bills and then some. DM will never understand this. She will never understand.
Seriously?
You want to lecture ME about the virtues of hard work?

The only thing you know about hard WORK is by watching other people from your lazy boy chair. Remember, Mitch, I know alot of truth about you and those pecan trees.

I've got 37 years of work invested in planting, fertilizing and upkeep so others can enjoy the bounty of a better life. Mostly with no outside help.
It's sad you can't appreciate our way of life.
What's even sadder is you fit in nowhere, with your attitude and selfishness for all things dawn marcelle.

Yeah, watch out Woody.
Let's see, 37 years ago you were fifteen years old you helped your dad plant some pecan trees and worked stocking shelves at his store after school.

When I was eight years old I was plowing fields, helping plant the garden that fed the family, chopped and stacked wood every year since I could walk. By the time I was ten I picked berries to earn the money to buy the fabric that I used to sew my own school clothes by myself. By the time I was in high school I was paying rent. Never would I consider that hard work as a reason to take claim on my fathers success.

Look at you today. Fifty three years old living in your Mommy's house not paying a dime of rent, never have your whole life.

Your parents have always taken care of you, not the other way around. Isn't it time you grow up instead of mooching your time away while waiting for an inheritance?

You forgot to mention your parents are very well off and now we know the reason why. Your parents were like us. They were thrifty. The saved for the future. You still regret those chores and where it led your parents.
Something tells me a true work ethic is not something you expound to.
