Seed Mix Design Course
Tannas Conservation Services Ltd. is pleased to offer a 2019 Seed Mix Design Course. With increasing environmental scrutiny and higher standards for reclamation and restoration, the science involved in creating seed mixes for targeted plant communities is critical. Seed mixes should account for a variety of factors including: seed size, establishment ability, environmental conditions as well as management factors such as seeding timing and technique.
The course will include three main components including: Site Assessment, Species Selection, and creation of a calculator (excel) for creating and manipulating seed mixes. Additional consideration will be made for live plant installation and associated calculators
Component 1 – Site Assessment and Literature Review
Background data collection, field assessment tools and techniques, recommended resources and materials to have on hand.
Component 2 – Species Selection
Selection of material that is suitable to the site, assessing the quality of seed lots, and the lot specific characteristics is critical in creating quality seed mix.
Component 3 – Building the Calculator
Build your own customized calculator to take home with you which allows you to understand the complexity of a seed mix and manipulate your calculator to create your own mixes
