dc.descriptionAbstract: An equipment report on press seeders and punch seeders is provided as Section 8.4.4 of the US Army Corps of Engineers Wildlife Resources Management Manual. The report is designed to assist the Corps District or project biologist with the selection and use of types of equipment and materials available for habitat development and manipulation. Topics covered include description, operation, and limitations. The Oregon press seeder is a specialized drill seeder developed for use on light, loose soils in sagebrush areas. The punch seeder is designed to seed fragile, arid soils and other areas where surface disturbance should be kept to a minimum. Management objectives for using the seeders are stated, and applications to habitat development projects are discussed. The design and assembly of equipment are described and illustrated, and general specifications are provided. Methods of operation are described, and maintenance and safety requirements are given. Appropriate cautions and limitations are discussed.-
