Niche seeding

Hi All,

does anyone have any experience in the niche seeding technique where pre-germinated seed is mixed with a medium and deposited into shallow holes or depressions by hand. It is used in difficult terrain or when there is the unavailability of machines for direct seeding. I have developed a prototype tool for this technique and am interested in the possibility of inoculating the medium with appropriate fungi and microbes. It may also be a cheap accessible method for community and volunteer restoration, and reduce the investment risk in areas where seedlings may be susceptible eg flood zones, predation.
