From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Aerial seeding is a technique of sowing seeds by spraying them through aerial mechanical means such as an aircraft.

The technique is one of the several broadcast seeding techniques. This technique is usually used to grow grasses, legumes or other suitable soil binding plants. The process is applied to increase vegetative cover over barren lands like ravines or burnt sites, where large geographical area is involved. The purpose of the technique is soil conservation by reducing soil erosion in extremely large area within lesser period. It is typically used where soil erosion hazards are high and native plant seed bank is destroyed by temperature or washed away by water resulting into complete denudation of top soil. This is the most effective technique for geographically inaccessible areas. Seed is dropped from fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter directly on the soil from a reasonable altitude.
