Aerial seeding popularly known as "seed bombing” is an innovative approach to ecological restoration which has emerged as a game-changing tactic for overcoming the difficulties associated with large-scale vegetation recovery in a variety of landscapes. In order to achieve a thorough analysis, the methodology, ecological effects, and potential to support long-term habitat restoration is the need of the era. Seed bombs provides protection by encapsulating the seeds with suitable substrates creating a congenial microenvironment improving viability, vigor and germination. They can rapidly span extensive landscapes, even in remote and challenging terrains, enhancing the probability of successful revitalization and restoring crucial habitats through the deliberate selection of appropriate plant species. Therefore, improvements in aerial delivery technologies, such as the use of drones and specialized aircraft offer control and precision in seed dispersal, ensuring ideal seed distribution patterns and maximizing ecosystem recovery.
