DescriptionPost-fire seeding of native species is intended to reduce weed entry, yet few studies have addressed the impacts of seeding methods on the establishment and persistence of exotic annuals. In summers of 2010 and 2011, we investigated productivity of exotic annuals across rehabilitation seedings that were established on the Scooby Wildfire site in northern Utah. The site, which was formerly dominated by Artemisia tridentata Nutt. ssp. wyomingensis Beetle & Young (Wyoming big sagebrush), burned in September 2008. Experimental treatments were applied in November 2008 and February 2009 to compare rangeland drill and minimum-till drill seedings of native grasses, forbs, and shrubs.
