We use Seed Enhancement Technologies (SETs) to optimize our seeds and give them their best chance to thrive. This includes seed priming and seed coating tailored to the specific variables of the seed and the environment into which they are dispersed. Each seedpod is a multi-layer coating of nutrients, non-toxic pesticides and disease-resistant materials, and is often coated on the outside with a layer of clay combined with site-specific soil to “hide” the scent and sight of the seed from its many predators. Birds, rodents, and insects find nutritious seeds quite delicious!

Seedpods do not depend on drones for their usefulness: they can be dropped out of planes, sold to landowners, given to 4H clubs, Boy Scouts, or anybody who wants to help.
