Direct seeding has gained wide acceptance in the South since the development, about 5 years ago, of repellents to protect seed from birds, rodents, and insects. An estimated 400,000 acres have been sown by a great number of individuals and companies. Low costs, small capital outlay for equipment, speed and ease of seeding, coupled with a high degree of reliability, account for the recent upsurge in the popularity of this new regeneration technique.
