    Brome grass is taking over pheasant habitat in CRP

    Forb loss is why we were trying November as to loose as little as possible. Spring application is going to get those early forbs like prairie smoke and pasque.

    Brome grass is taking over pheasant habitat in CRP

    This is a good option for guys who have the ability to burn. Most of the time rx fire is not possible. The Plateau application is good but there will be some loss of forbs. Some great options for guys here.

    Brome grass is taking over pheasant habitat in CRP

    Round up in November or even December on one of those days it hits 40ish. Just make sure its been really cold prior to the warm up. I know it sounds dumb but it works and its cheap. 2qts

    Back in my bird country

    We finally might have a good hatch and the state decides to not do the crow counts..... Every thing I see in ND and SD looks good.

    Just returned from South Dakota

    What is different this year is the lack of planted crops on the landscape. There is still 1000's of acres of unharvested corn in ND and SD. PP is really prevalent as well. Some of this ground has had chemical burn downs but some of its been so wet they couldn't even spray it. Its kinda bad...

    Habitat stamp Required

    My experience with quality habitat is that it takes time and money to develop. We have been farming and spraying thousands of acres and now our last WPA is seeded back in that Eureka area. We started that project in 2010. Expecting differences in habitat this fall is a little early. Give...

    I am sure I over simplified the program. Gov programs are never simple. Here is the link. https://www.fsa.usda.gov/programs-and-services/conservation-programs/conservation-reserve-enhancement/index

    Other Habitats

    It has the staple NWSGs like big blue, Indian and switch but we really go heavy on the native forbs to out compete the Canada thistle and wormwoood. Lots of maximillian, and false sunflower, bergomot, milkvetch, prairie rose, cone flowers, prairie clovers and the like.

    Other Habitats

    Well when I say "we" I mean the heros that actually sat on the tractor. Those days are unfortunately over for me. Once in a while I get that opportunity but for the most part its our seasonals that do that work now. I can get you the actual mix but its usually 15 grass species and 15 forbs...

    Other Habitats

    Well our burn season was the worst we have had in 10 years. Not the end of the world but a set back on the less. The only rx fire I was on was the Mt. Rushmore burn which was kinda neat. We did get 250 acres planted tho which is a big deal. These latest rains will help immensely.

    CREP is just CRP were the state of SD pitches in some extra money to the landowner to open it up to hunting.
