Two plots in southeastern Minnesota were seeded with several species of prairie vegetation . Grasses native to the prairie proliferated, while some foreign species failed to survive. Fire was used on one plot to stimulate the native species and reduce competition from cool-season grasses. Additional planting of forbs will be attempted to increase species diversity on the plots. Burning also will be continued to determine the effect of fire on the vegetation.
