Re: Habitat plantings on game lands question?
no they are leased for farming.
so crop rotation is the biggest reason
the PGC tells the leasee what areas they can plant and what 20% is off limits.they also must leave a percentage of crop in the field after harvest
the PGC propagates the left over areas with a habitat plot (switchgrass)
these areas stay out of the crop rotation for awhile until the health of the plot degrades
they do however mow them to fight off invasives and tree growth
other areas will get a food plot(sorghum/clover)
these areas are mixed in amongst the farmers crop rotations
