Drill seeding is a very calculated and precise seeding process. Drill seeding as name suggests, is all about drilling a hole into the ground and then putting the seeds in the created holes.
This process can be carried out by hand, but it can be really time-consuming and daunting, so a specialized tractor is generally used. In the tractor a special type of seeding attachment is used which is also called as a drill.
The drill uses a mechanical system to create holes. The system then puts seeds at pre-determined depth and then proceeds to cover the seed with soil. You can easily regulate the depth of the seed as well as the rate of application. This type of seeding is best for large and leveled areas.
Drill seeding has numerous advantages. For one, it is reasonable, especially when compared with other types of erosion control treatments. Plus, the system doesn’t use wood or fiber, therefore overall price is usually reasonable.
Drill seeding also provides better vegetative cover. As you are required to place another layer of soil on the seed, it will work as a protection that might prevent seed germination like wind, birds or the sun.
