Assessing Goose Depredation on Grain and Seed Yields

The primary research objective throughout this program has been to develop methods that farmers can use (or contract out) to document the impact of grazing by geese on crop yield. We have worked with wheat and grass seed crops, but believe that our techniques are adaptable for other crops. Altogether, this manual provides growers, conservation professionals and farm services businesses with a comprehensive methodology to quantify goose impacts that includes step-by-step instructions, supplementary information, and pictures. Below is a listing of the areas that are part of this manual:
