WEC 225: Dove Fields in Florida

Figure 4. Doves prefer to forage on the ground in relatively open vegetation. Foods can be made more available to doves by silage chopping or mowing strips of crops to put them on the ground, and through the use of selective herbicides, prescribed fire, or mechanical treatments to reduce weed encroachment in and around crops.
