Abstract: Proper management of military training lands is critical to ensure availability of training lands, and thereby ensure mission readiness. However, installation land management practices often support a broader mission than simply maintaining the land in a condition suitable for training; they also help installations to meet environmental requirements. The Optimal Allocation of Land for Training and Non-Training Uses (OPAL) Program was developed to provide a systematic approach to enable military land managers and trainers to estimate biomass responses to training/management scenarios (training, mowing, and burning). This report documents a field validation of the OPAL model at Fort Riley, KS, and makes recommendations for system improvement.
