That's awesome! Kind of a slow mine detection process, but really cool, none the less!

I really hope they plan to air drop plant these seeds. Otherwise there may be no mines left to use the plants for. I do not want to be the guy digging around planting this stuff, rather clear mines the proven way. Give them a grapnel hook or teach em to search by knife, it will get done faster.

Besides by the time the plants take root, weeks would have been wasted if not months of faster efficient clearing. Unless the growth rate is modified also, then it's another story. Spread the stuff around and watch it grow like a chia pet on fertalizer, or the Ripley (for those who have read or seen "the DreamCatcher").

Ha ha the dreamcatcher...saw that unfortunately...
thing is there is a HUGE number of unaccounted landmines in places they havent even begun to search...I say every little bit helps and yes BETTER air drop the seed...plowing would render the plants useless...LOL
