Project Overview
In cooperation with USDA-FSA, we will assist six landowners on 158 acres of CREP easements with maintenance of diverse native prairie seeding. These easements were established in 2001 to take marginal cropland out of production and reestablish native habitats. Despite our attempts to maintain these as sites as native prairie habitat, invasive trees and shrubs have established on the native prairie and wetlands. This project would control the trees and shrubs. The maintenance activities consist of spot spraying tree and shrub with Element 3/Platoon, followed by a controlled burn and a second herbicide application the following year. We will actively work to provide education on the management of prairies. Management of these easements will preserve the integrity of the native prairie seedings. This will in turn provide numerous benefits to game and nongame species, including nesting and brood rearing pheasants, prairie songbirds and waterfowl.
