For the first time in more than 10 years, the university set fire to grassland at the Barta Brothers Ranch near Rose, Neb., and burned 150 acres on March 18, 2022. The burn was part of the collaborative adaptive management project that the university’s Center for Resilience in Agricultural Working Landscapes and its Center for Grassland Studies have led at the ranch since 2020.
"We were very excited to implement an experiment in that process," said Dan Uden, CRAWL scientist and natural resources professor.

We have a group of stakeholders who basically design these experiments, and we help them with that and then we carry them out and we monitor the results."
