Mass-planting by dropping from a plane, suitable plants frozen into dart-shapes so they spear into the ground.

       So when someone gets killed by one of these things they could be literally 'pushing up daisys'.   

       That's worth a frozen dart-shaped croissant.

       Yes aerial dropping of pelleted seed is old, and so is using dart-shped containers.   

       I had hoped the ice-dart might be new; it may still be.   

       However the danger to people and stock [Phoenix], is enough to knock the idea out too. Thanks.

       Ah, I missed the subtlety.

       PeterSealy : Should be suitable for planting freesia bulbs at least.

       [PeterSealy] The seeds are suspended in a mixture of fertilizer and water the outer shell of which is frozen to allow the seed to penetrate the ground upon impact. Everybody knows that. M-O-O-N that spells plane planting.

       Sow a tree in motion.

       A machine gun variation of ice darts from the back of a truck, would at least avoid striking humans and animals except for the operators.

       We've already halfbaked a seed-planting machine gun. We halfbaked the hell outta that one. <linkbelt>
