Understand factors regulating plant community compositions on Conservation Reserve Program lands.
We will gather environmental (e.g. precipitation during the seeding year, soil type) and management (tillage, seed mix, seeder type) data on 200 Conservation Reserve Program lands just prior to seeding. Then, 2-4 years after seeding, we will measure plant abundances on the field. We will conduct an analysis to understand environmental and management factors promoting desired vegetation outcomes.
