You don't need a drill. A lot of folks use the "throw and mow" method. This is essentially spreading "throwing" out seed into an existing crop, then mowing it. All the thatch or "green manure" will lay right on top of the seed you put out. Just know that the smaller seeds (rape, clover, etc...) sometimes work a little better with this because they can get down to good soil contact easier. However, wheat and cereal rye typically do just fine with this - it will grow in the bed of a truck. Also some of the bigger seeds (soybeans, peas, etc...) have a lot of energy and typically do just fine as well.does the green manure method work without drilling in the next crop?

Completely agree with everything you said, Popcorn.As in life a variety is always better, a diverse seed blend will address soil needs much faster.
