Water seeding is a novel, recently introduced method of establishment.
How do we perform water seeding?
- Pre-germinated seeds are used as the planting material.
- soaked for 48 hours and incubated for 24 hours.
- Seeds are broadcasted to puddled soil with standing water unlike in wet seeding.
- water may contain suspended clay particles.
- seeds slowly get deposited with a thin layer of mud.
- Protect the sown seeds from birds.
- Minimize the growth of weeds including grasses and sedges.
