NSCU eFire- Wimberley – Jessie Interview Farm Objectives
Jesse Wimberly has two objectives for his farm. He manages for straw production to generate income and maintains conservation value on portions of the farm. Each of these objectives requires different prescriptions to attain the objective of interest. In straw production areas, he eliminates all competition and diversity since it can reduce the value of straw. When maximizing diversity for conservation value burns on areas of his property, Jesse uses a different burn technique. Each are dependent on topography, wind speed, and temperature. Each of these parameters can have different effects and achieve specific objectives when applied under certain conditions.
