A tool for collecting seeds of Indian Ricegrass and other native species has been made by the federal Bureau of Mines. With this hand-held seed collector, one person can collect enough material to produce 3 to 5 pounds of clean Indian Ricegrass seed per day. Cleaning the seed takes only one-third of the time traditionally required because 90 pct of the stalks are left on the plants.
