The grasses you're planting are native prairie grasses and related species.
They are normally planted with a special seeder that has brushes in the
seed box to separate those fluffy seeds and allow them to be dropped
uniformly. One company that makes this type of seeder is Truax. This is a
no-till type drill. Another type is made by Brillion and it is used
primarily for a clean tilled situation. In Wisconsin, many local agency
offices (DNR, NRCS) have this equipment and will loan it out or even help
you plant (usually for a small charge). Hope this helps.
