    It has been planted for erosion control, livestock forage, and wildlife cover. When the plant was introduced, the diseases and insects that once kept it in check were left in Asia. As a result, it has become very competitive in grasslands and even been declared a noxious weed in Kansas. To assess the impacts of growing coffee on wildlife, researchers examined the abundance of species of birds, including at-risk species like the Nilgiri wood-pigeon, from to on coffee.

    Vegetation controls erosion by reducing the velocity and the volume of overland flow and protecting the bare soil surface from raindrop impact. Areas which must be stabilized after the land has been disturbed require vegetative cover. The most common and economical means of establishing this cover is by seeding grasses and legumes.   Describe the effect of three kinds of erosion-control practices. A wildlife refuge or a fish or game management area. A conservation-managed farm or ranch. Seed an area of at least 1/5 acre for some worthwhile conservation purpose, using suitable grasses or legumes alone or in a mixture. Study a soil survey report. Describe the thing in it.

    Erosion Control Implement erosion control measures as necessary (slope stabilization, seeding, mulching, soil retention blankets, etc.).

You Benefit. Land, Water and Wildlife Benefit. Restoring grasses and legumes sharply reduces erosion, provides habitat for wildlife, and benefits the environment. The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) provides farmers and landowners with practices like this to achieve many farming and conservation goals.

An added food/structure benefit may also be obtained with the addition of a grass component (See Legume Inter-Seeding Wildlife Habitat Management Fact Sheet).

Planning Habitat Management Fact. Weed control by legume residues may not last as long as for an equivalent amount of grass residue. Legumes do not increase soil organic matter as much as grasses.

Mixtures of legume and grass cover crops combine the benefits of both, including biomass production, N scavenging and additions to the system, as well as weed and erosion control.

Kidney beans and other legumes are a major source of food in Latin America, while lentils, pigeon peas, and chickpeas are important in South Asia. In the Middle East and North Africa, faba beans, lentils, and chickpeas are particularly important.

Cover crops in a conservation tillage planting system provide erosion control during the winter while the plant is growing and mulch for. IMPORTANCE TO LIVESTOCK AND WILDLIFE: Partridge pea seeds are a valuable food for northern bobwhite in the Southeast [21,24,34].Wild legumes, including showy partridge pea, were found to be the most important fall and winter foods of northern bobwhite in the Alabama Piedmont forests of slash pine (Pinus elliottii), loblolly pine (P.

• Mulching: Mulches alone help protect areas from erosion. Mulches also provide initial protection if area is to be seeded later. Use hay or straw at a. Please select your Wildlife Food Plot Seed below.

Forage grasses, like sod crops, are excellent for nutrient scavenging, erosion control, biomass production and weed control. Perennials used as cover crops are usually grown for about one year. Summer-annual (warm-season) grasses may fill a niche for biomass production and weed or erosion control if the ground would otherwise be left fallow.

This practice is primarily for erosion control, the establishment of native woody or herbaceous vegetation can also provide food and/or cover for wildlife and restore native management practice can include the establishing and managing wind breaks or shelter-belts by planting multi-row shelter-belts (at least 4 rows in feet om.

Further benefits they provide when used as a cover crop include erosion control, addition of organic matter to the soil, and moisture conservation.

Big Bluestem is a perennial, warm-season grass that occurs across North America, from the shortgrass prairie east to the Atlantic Ocean. It grows 3 to 6 feet tall, with a bunchy or sod-forming habit and reddish-purple leaves at maturity. Notorious for its “turkey track”-like, branched inflorescence, and as an indicator species of good range management.

[ ].Erosion control: Black-eyed Susan is an important component in critical area treatment plantings along with grasses, legumes, and other forbs when used along road cuts, hillsides, and other areas subject to erosion.

Wildlife: This plant offers protection and food to several song and game birds. Recreation and beautification: Black-eyed Susan can.Protect Wildlife Avoid photodegradable erosion-control materials where possible.

Use only biodegradable materials (typically made from natural fibers), preferably those that will biodegrade under a variety of conditions. The cost of erosion-control material that is wildlife friendly is often comparable to conventional plastic netting.
