DescriptionThe 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.
