Seeding after soil disturbance can be a useful tool to re-establish desirable competitive vegetation on the site. It is also a critical step in preventing or reducing potential establishment of invasive plants. But what should you plant, and how?
This webinar will take you through the steps to select suitable species for your ecosystem including setting objectives, considering palatability or wildlife attractants, height, native vs non-native, and potential seed contamination. It will cover best practices for how you should seed or revegetate the site which is a very important step to maximize the likelihood of success. Finally, our presenter will provide information on how and when to monitor seeding. The webinar will cover several examples of successes and failures to learn from, and will have time for some specific questions from the attendees.
