- Jul 7, 2012Boovarahan,
Could you explain this in step by step method. I am not able
to visualize how to do it. I would like to try it for my cover crop.
I tried to dip the seeds in thick slurry of clay (mud from my farm pond), i
do not think i am successful. I did not know how to dry the seeds, it was
all sticking together.
