Titre : Improvement of Forb Seedling Establishment to Diversify Rangeland Revegetation Efforts in the Great Basin

Identification : 2080-21000-014-36

Pays : Etats Unis

Durée : Start Date : Aug 15, 2015 End Date : Sep 30, 2016

Objectif
Identify techniques that can be used to improve the establishment of important Great Basin forb specie

Descriptif
Greenhouse and field studies will be conducted to determine if seedling establishment can be improved in important forb species native to the Great Basin. Possible techniques to be investigated include use of the Hollow Frame Fence System (HFFS) and N-Sulate fabric to extend the period for favorable seedling emergence. Seed pelleting techniques will also be examined to determine if seed dormancy issues can be overcome to allow successful seedling establishment of forbs native to rangelands of the Great Basin.
