Air raid!

Seed Bombs: First stirrings of the Genesis Device?

Each self-contained capsule is made of biodegradable plastic, and it melts away when wet, allowing the seedling within to flourish. Although it's not creating a heaven on earth at a subatomic level, it's a great start. Drop a few dozen planeloads of these babies, and it's goodbye desertification!

Although intended to enliven our own planet, this strikes me as a technology that might be rather easily modified to help terraform Mars.
