Exclosures
9.2 Other Instructions and Recommendations Related to Exclosures
 
-
  Put a 1-foot wooden stake (Figure IA-9) into the ground at each exclosure’s corner. It should be driven in with only 1 inch remaining above the ground. This stake will help you locate the exclosure after it has been removed (see third point below).

-
  The corner of each exclosure should be geo-positioned with a GPS unit (Figure IA- 10). This allows for the overlay of these points on the base map and subsequent use as a reference to extract yield data inside exclosures.

-
  As soon as geese leave the area (migrate north in the spring), exclosures should be removed. Removal is much easier before the grass grows up and into the wire.
