Seed Bombs- Innovation in Plantation
Innovation is the prerequisite to development, and it is especially needed in the field of environmental protection considering the fast-paced climate change. The government of Assam has come up with an innovative technique for plantation – Seed Bombs. Seed Bombing is a technique of planting trees by embedding organic seed balls in the ground according to MyGov.in. It is also known as aerial reforestation. Seed balls can be thrown or dropped in the ground to introduce vegetation to any area. The rainy season is the best time to carry out this procedure. Seeds planted using this method have a 50% success rate. This novel initiative has been adopted in a few places in Assam. Having fertile soil, the condition in Assam is ideal for seed bombing.
