Pelletizing seeds
« on: August 10, 2016, 10:40:05 AM »
Reading One Straw Revolution a while ago has sparked an idea in my head that I wanted to get feedback on.

In the book, the author talks about "pelletizing" seed (rice seed I think) by manually encapsulating individual seeds in a ball of soil. He would then broadcast the soil pellets, and the seeds would of course germinate and there you go.

I was daydreaming about pelletizing and broadcasting Maypop seeds, which are pretty small, into "wild" areas (places with lots of wild grasses, wildflowers, etc already established). Thought this might make the broadcasting easier and might aid in the actual establishment of the seeds.

Stupid?
Jus crazy bout dem pawpaws!
