Abstract: An equipment report on steep-slope seeders is provided as Section 8.4.6 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 maintenance, limitations, and availability. The steep-slope seeder consists of a telescoping boom crane and seeding apparatus developed for establishing vegetation on steep, unstable slopes. Management objectives for using steep-slope seeders are stated, and application to habitat development projects is 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.
