TxDOT Native Plant Integration Program for South, Central and West Texas

This project will work to collect, evaluate, and release native seed sources for use by TxDOT in Central, West, and South Texas. Project seed collectors will obtain seeds from target native plant species throughout these regions. Evaluation plantings will be made using these seeds at numerous locations throughout the project area, and plant performance of the various species and collections will be assessed. Following evaluation and testing, the most suitable species and collections will be increased in field-scale production fields, and seeds harvested from these fields will be distributed to commercial growers to make well-tested, adapted native plants and seeds readily available for use by TxDOT for right of way vegetation management and restoration.
