||Over the past 60 years, the USDA, Natural Resources Conservation Service, USDA, Agricultural Research Service, and State Agricultural Experiment Stations have developed establishment technology to restore ecosystems and produce forage and wildlife habitat. In the
eastern United States, poor technology transfer, low levels of utilization of the technology by producers and agency and university employees, and employee turnover have resulted in a low
level of awareness of traditional establishment technology. The simplest of establishment principles such as seed stratification, seeding dates to overcome stratification, seeding dates, the
importance of firm seedbeds, the necessity of drilling, PLS calculation, drill calibration, seedbed preparation, and weed control have been developed and must be reinforced. The poster will
present these principles.
