Onaqui Sagebrush Control Subplots

All of the SageSTEP study sites have a control plot to account for variations that are not related to treatment, such as yearly climatic variation. Plateau pre-emergence herbicide was sprayed on half of the subplots on the control plot to control cheatgrass. The images below show two subplots from 2006-2009, one where Plateau was not used and one where Plateau was sprayed at a rate of 6oz per acre after treatment in fall 2006.
