Reading the Range Program
The University of Arizona, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Arizona Cooperative Extension
Range monitoring workshops have been offered for several years by the University of Arizona, yet range monitoring as a standard operating procedure on Arizona ranches had been sporadically adopted. In 2000, a USDA grant, Reading the Range was obtained and demonstration ranches for range monitoring were established with technical assistance provided. It was hoped that establishment of demonstration ranches for range monitoring would encourage neighboring ranches to consider implementing similar practices on their ranches. (source: website)
