      Thanks for sharing this info. If we can make it work, nothing like this. Lot of people are not able to make large scale seed balls since the current methods are time consuming.

      One of the greatest organic farming exponents Sri Nammlwar has suggested a
      method wherein wet seeds are mixed with soil and sieved through a wire mesh
      , just like we sieve river sand for building / construction work . The wet
      seeds are then dried and kept in stock. One Mr Shankar from Tirunelveli has
      suggested me this method when I narrated him of my failure with direct
      scattering of rice seeds.
      But I have not tested it.
