A study of burned and unburned portions of grazed and ungrazed mixed prairie revealed a significant (p<.01) reduction in standing crop of grass on the ungrazed treatments whereas the reduction on the grazed treatments was not significant. Comparison of soil moisture on all treatments did not detect appreciable differences thus suggesting that the damaging effect of this wildfire was largely a function of the amount of fuel present at the time of the burn.
