Drill Seeding is an agricultural process complete with a tractor and a specialized seeding attachment called a drill. The drill uses a mechanical mechanism to place seed in the soil. The depth of the seed can be regulated as well as the rate of application.
Because drill seeding uses no wood/fiber mulch in the process, the cost is generally 1/2 or even less. Drill seeding is advantageous on larger areas such as pastures and reclamation projects, more level areas and projects where it is difficult to obtain adequate water to hydro-seed.
Drill seeding is not an inferior method of seeding. In fact, in some applications it is superior to hydro-seeding.
