- Jul 7, 2012Don't make the soil wet . Just make the seeds wet . Take dry soil ( sieved
and powdered - to avoid clumps ) slightly more in volume than that of seeds
( around twice the volume of seeds should work ) . The soil should be
highly clayey so as to stick with wet seeds . Mix thoroughly the wet seeds
and dry soil in a pan so that the seeds are coated with clayey soil . (
Simply take out the seeds from water / Bijamrutha and mix with soil ). Then
use a mesh screen which we use to sieve sand for plastering work to sieve
the seed soil mixture. The dry soil comes out through the mesh while the
coated seeds stay behind .
I have not tested this method but it is worth giving a try.
