      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 1/3 of the time traditionally required because 90% of the stalks are left on the plants.
