Drill seeded plot at the site of the Martin Fire

Detailed Description

An experimental plot that was drill seeded with native grasses after the Martin Fire in northern Nevada. Drill seeding is a method in which a drill buries seeds into the soil at a targeted depth that is ideal for that plant species. A tractor typically pulls the drill along to bury the seeds in rows.
