Moist-Soil Management

Moist-soil research and the development of management techniques has been an expanding process since the early 1900's in the United States. While most of us view moist-soil management primarily from the perspective of improving habitat for waterfowl and being able to attract and hold ducks, the overall conservation impact is much broader.

 

The science of managing moist-soil units has increased dramatically as it has become a major piece of the conservation puzzle. Soil disturbance, water management with its variables of flooding timing, rate, and duration, and then subsequent drawn-downs (and again with its timing, rate, and duration) are just a few of the components of properly managing moist-soil wetlands for optimum plant growth, wildlife habitat, and food sources.

 

WRP land and other types of wetland habitat require land owners and managers to learn some of the required science if they desire to make the most of the wetland habitat. In addition to the hard and fast science, there are also the nuances and "exceptions to the rules" that are as valid as the science. These subtle shifts from the printed facts can only be learned, in my opinion and experience, by trial and error and observation as each land manager applies the science to his particular locale. So, if you you are having a cuckleburr problem, should you begin a draw-down in late April or mid-May in your area? The facts will give you a general guide...but your trial and error and paying attention to what works...and when...will be where you will become a better manager.
