Equipment and strategies to enhance the post-wildfire establishment and persistence of Great Basin native plants


St. John, Loren. 2009. Equipment and strategies to enhance the post-wildfire establishment and persistence of Great Basin native plants. Progress Report: September 2008. U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Aberdeen Plant Materials Center. 4 p.

The objectives of this project are to: examine seeding techniques for Wyoming big sagebrush; test seeding technology for native species, particularly native forbs; compare the ability of a modified rangeland drill and an experimental minimum-till drill to plant native seed species of diverse size and to reduce surface disturbance; apply and examine the use of USGS proposed monitoring protocols for gauging seeding success for both the short and long term; and provide plantings for long-term examination of livestock on diversity in native seedings.

Keywords: Wyoming big sagebrush, forbs, rangeland drill, minimum-till drill
