This report analyzes the costs associated with three direct-seeding systems used in Canada for the regeneration of boreal conifers and compares these costs with those of a container planting system. The study identifies component costs for each system to aid readers in choosing the most cost-effective system, and recommends future research and development directions to provide more economical direct-seeding systems.
