No Till Drill Improving Habitat Across West Virginia

Posted Monday July 24, 2017 by wf_admin

Native warm season grasses are extremely valuable as winter cover for wildlife. These heavy stemmed grasses typically remain standing during periods of heavy snow, unlike the cool season varieties. This is one reason why Wildlife Forever supported the purchase of a no-till drill for the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources. In addition to being able to plant warm season grasses, the eight row drill is adapted for the planting of legumes and small grains and has proven valuable in preparing food plots. The no-till drill has been used on wildlife management areas throughout the state. The establishment of these grasses is being used as demonstration areas for those interested in improving forage and cover on private lands. Your support made this valuable wildlife habitat tool possible.
