Simple Techniques for Creating Transitional Succession Habitats

Very few things worth having in life come free, still fewer of them seem to happen quickly.  As a land manager, when trying to increase cover we have many options available to us and most of them seem to take years to come to fruition. Most of them seem to come with an increasingly steep price tag.  Grain seed for food plots like corn and soybeans is rising sharply, especially if you choose Roundup Ready varieties.
