    Description

    The Range Planting Conservation Practice Standard is used to inform development of Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) management recommendations for improving vegetation composition and productivity of grazed plant communities. Range planting recommendations are generally implemented within an integrated conservation management system in conjunction with related conservation practices such as brush management, prescribed burning, prescribed grazing, herbaceous weed control, and upland wildlife habitat management. The Range Planting Standard is defined as "establishment of adapted perennial or self-sustaining vegetation such as grasses, forbs, legumes, shrubs and trees."
