ABSTRACT
The article reports on the use of burning and rotational grazing system in healing native rangeland. Range ecologist Richard Teague of Texas AgriLife Research notes that the application of burning in the summer is more effective than winter fires in unwanted woody plants and prickly pear cactus prevention because they burn hotter as revealed in his study. As for the rotational grazing, he states that such treatment has important implications for rates in infiltration, runoff, and erosion.
