Drill seeding is the preferred method of seed planting since seed is placed in the ground, giving better protection and seed to soil contact. It is particularly suited to re-vegetate flat, broad-acre areas such as subdivision, highway or road projects, and sporting fields. The process typically includes fertilizing, conditioning the seedbed surface, then drill seeding. Drill seeding has a high seed germination success rate because this method ensures seed contact is made with the soil. The application is also relatively inexpensive compared to other seeding options.
