Barth Crouch of the Kansas Grazing Lands Coalition Shares How Landowners Can Fight Fire with Fire

Wed, 10 Oct 2018 15:58:06 CDT

Barth Crouch of the Kansas Grazing Lands Coalition Shares How Landowners Can Fight Fire with Fire On the latest episode of the Southern Plains Podcast, host and USDA Southern Plains Climate Hub Coordinator Clay Pope visits with Barth Crouch, executive director of the Kansas Grazing Lands Coalition and also treasurer for the Kansas Prescribed Fire Council. Pope visits with Crouch in this podcast about wildfires vs. prescribed burning and the importance of managed fire as a tool to improve pasture and range health as well as reducing the danger from out of control wildfires.



According to Crouch, prescribed fire is the most cost effective and safest method in clearing unwanted brush and in mimicking the effects of wildfires to instigate the land’s natural recovery process as opposed to the mechanical removal alternative.



“Fire is the best way to duplicate a condition that brings about the kind of mosaic of diverse plants on your property, keep them all in a healthy situation and keep that best soil condition we can have under grazing lands,” Crouch said.
