This season I tried pruning to 6 nodes to stimulate branching and production to no success. Any other suggestions?

I dont have a clue, my guess is it may not be a brown turkey fig.
You will have to look up all of the types of figs to see what yours may be.
You might also try not pruning it at all to see what happens.
Some figs produce on last years growth and the new growth at the end of the season.
They also need plenty of water.
