Slit seeding is the way to go, especially if there is no irrigation. You will get 85-95% germination like that. And you don't need to straw. Go 3 Lb's per 1000 sq. ft. if overseeding. 6 Lb's per 1000 sq. ft. if new. Very Important - Use top quality seed. Sow 1/2 of seed in one direction then sow at 90 degrees to the first direction. Set the seed depth at 3/8 inch. Yes it is slow but the results are worth it. you should be able to rent a seeder easily, but at this time of year they are in demand so plan ahead.
