Crop Diversity Assessment

Having a range of crops thriving on your reclamation site is one of the keys to a successful project, and at Duraroot, our scientists can monitor the diversity of your vegetation. Crop diversity is crucial to the success of your land reclamation project and our scientists can design as well as monitor your property closely to ensure quality vegetation. Our crop assessments factor in everything from diversity to ground cover and weedy species inventory in order to provide you with clear results.

The Importance of Maintaining Crop Population

An abundance of different vegetation supports ecological reclamation, resulting in more successful reclamation efforts. Our team is highly trained in plant identification and understands the state of your vegetations population as well as how to make sure that your property’s diversity is where it should be. The diversity of the crop population, ground cover of plant matter, and the weedy species inventories will also be inspected and compared to the expected levels for your reclamation.

Creating Crop Diversity for Reclamation Success

The diversity of your crops is necessary for all successful reclamations, so trust our experienced scientists and agronomists to create a plan for your site based off of our knowledge of vegetation and weed species. We can also monitor the ground cover of your area with aerial photographs to show the amount of ground covered by vegetations, known as basal cover, in order to ensure diversity is present throughout your property.

Expert Integrated Weed Management

Another important part of crop monitoring and plant diversity is acknowledging and controlling weeds, which can negatively impact the population of your crops. We’ll identify the all the different weedy species present at your reclamation site and form an Integrated Weed Management (IWM) strategy to fight these plants long-term using a series of techniques such as physical, chemical, biological, and cultural control methods. Our scientists will provide you with an IWM strategy that fits your needs and promotes diversity among intended crops.
