The Iowa DOT is seeking ways to improve practices associated with revegetation projects to increase establishment of native grasses and forbs. One of these practices is to seed native grasses and forbs between Apr 01 - June 30 and between Aug. 01 - Aug. 31 (Iowa DOT 2001). We investigated seeding at different times during the growing season to determine the most appropriate seeding time for optimal establishment of prairie grasses and wildflowers.
