Noxious Weeds - Prescribed Fire
Under some conditions, prescribed fire can increase grass nutritive quality, availability, yield, reduce hazardous fuels, suppress unwanted plants, and improve wildlife habitat. Grass quality and availability are improved because the fire removes dead plant material and improves access to new growth. Generally, grass yields increase because baring and darkening the soil surface allows it to warm more quickly and stimulate earlier growth, and because competing weeds are suppressed. When combined with weed management methods, prescribed fire helps aid in the control of noxious weeds.
