Superfund sites can be challenging to revegetate. Some of the challenges presented are soil fertility (pH, organic matter, nutrient levels), site hydrology, and weeds. This presentation will give attendees an opportunity to learn how Ernst Conservation Seeds turned a former brownfield site into a seed production field. Attendees will learn the challenges posed by the site at the outset and in the future and how they have been or will be addressed.
