Marshall County

Description

"This location has been an agricultural research station for more than 50 years, used for conducting research experiments with agricultural crops and grasses. The test site was previously used for experimental planting of grasses. Site preparation involved herbicide application, subsoiling and planting of trees in flat beds. The areas surrounding the test site consist of experimental forest trees, agricultural fields, and less than 5 year-old pine plantations.
A field test of the same clone (EH1) was established at this site on 0.5 acres under permit 08-039-102rm. This test was subsequently terminated. No additional plantings are currently anticipated at this site. Additional tests, if planted at this site, would be allowed to flower under permit # 08-011-106rm." (APHIS 2010)
