Native Plant Protocol Development

The seedlab is at the forefront of developing and adopting new seed technology for use with all types of native plants, both non-timber and timber types. The latest equipment and techniques for seed conditioning and seed testing are evaluated and researched. CooAstragalus filipesperative studies are conducted with nursery and regeneration personnel to develop and improve seed handling protocols for conservation nurseries and other producers of both timber and non-timber native plants. Presently, the lab is cooperating with the Great Basin Restoration Initiative to develop seed testing protocols for numerous native plants in the Great Basin. more information on the Great Basin Restoration Initiative.
