Abstract:

Mississippi State University, in cooperation with USDA-NRCS-AWCC has
coordinated a multi-state research program of 11 studies in 9 states
designed to evaluate the effectiveness of conservation practices and
NRCS technical assistance to meet population and habitat goals of the
Northern Bobwhite Conservation Initiative. Individual studies have
evaluated vegetation and bobwhite population responses to: mechanical
and herbicidal brush control, prescribed fire, and deferred grazing in
rangelands; conservation buffer width, buffer type, and landscape
context in agricultural landscapes; herbicidal, prescribed fire, and
mechanical mid-contract management practices on grassland CRP fields;
and willingness of rural landowners to adopt conservation practices to
enhance bobwhite populations. Results of the 11 individual studies
illustrating integration of effective conservation practices in
production systems in working landscapes will be presented. Technology
transfer products from this cooperative, multi-agency, multi-state
project will be used to: develop and refine NRCS practice standards,
train and equip NRCS field personnel in delivering conservation
programs, and inform agricultural landowners about resource
conservation. Partners in this venture include U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS),
Mississippi State University, Forest and Wildlife Research Center,
Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (MSU), Quail Unlimited, Inc. (QU),
and the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (SEAFWA).
