Drill Comparisons for Seeding in the Great Basin


Drill Comparisons for Seeding in the Great Basin. Webinar, Great Basin Fire Science Exchange,  20 December 2013.

The rangeland drill has proved useful for seeding perennial plants following fire in the Intermountain West. Developments such as multiple seed boxes and drill-broadcasting units have allowed greater use of native plants for post-fire seeding, and soil disturbance can now be reduced through minimum-till drills. Jeff Ott reports on experiments carried out by the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station, testing the effectiveness of different rangeland drill techniques for seeding common native species of Wyoming sagebrush communities in the northern Great Basin.
