Considerations for Purchasing Native Seed Mixes

Land managers plant commercial native seed mixes for a variety of reasons. Knowledge about species present in the mix, the source of the seed, seed quality, and how seeds are marketed in the United States is helpful when deciding what and how much to purchase. This article provides a brief overview of these topics and summarizes points land managers should consider when purchasing seed. This paper was presented at the Joint Annual Meeting of the Northeast Forest and Conservation Association, the Southern Forest Nursery Association, and the Intertribal Nursery Council (Walker, MN, July 31–August 3, 2017).
