Successful plantings of deteriorated range lands have attracted much attention throughout the Intermountain region in recent years. Well-planned and carefully executed reseeding projects produce good stands that significantly improve the range.

The need for increased meat and wool production in our war effort and the promise of range reseeding as a huge work reservoir in a post-war conservation program make the consideration of this subject particularly timely.
