LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, with the help of tenant farmers, will till 64 acres at Yankee Hill Wildlife Management Area (WMA) and grow crops to eradicate noxious and invasive plants from fields.
Corn and soybeans will be planted at the WMA south of Lincoln to control weeds, and, whenever possible, milo, wheat and alfalfa will be planted to promote upland game.
“There are many issues with noxious and invasive weeds on the area,” said Pat Molini, Game and Parks southeast district wildlife manager. “These types of plants often take over fields or cause an entire field to be sprayed to control the undesirable species of plants.”
