Lately, I have been getting seeding jobs that are way to hard to hydroseed simply because of the distance You must drag hoses. large tracts (20-30-40 acres) of cleared land to ruff to drive trucks on and to wide to drag hose over. Developers are basicly selectively removeing trees and grubbing for views and leaving the ground ruff with broken limbs, stumps and whatever. To ruff for seed drills or seed ovators, leaving me with the only option of broadcasting the seed, fertilizer, and lime with tractors. I dont like this method of seeding simply because the seed often lays on the ground exposed for to long and you dont get much germination. For those of you that use tractors to seed with, what implements do you prefer to use and why. Mind you, I aint going to be doing any smoothing or removing of sticks and such and most of the areas will get regraded by new owners when their homes are built. I just need something that will give me better seed survivability. I am thinking about trying one of those large spike type drum areators and have noticed that you can even get them with a seed box for applying seed. Has anybody used one? I will try to find a link to show what I am referring to.
