Why is there such a big difference in price of lawn seeds?

Mostly it comes down to the different types of protective coating on the seed.  They may be uncoated (brown in appearance), lime coated (normally blue) which is a thick coating of lime around the seed, acting as a bird repellent but creating a lot of additional bulk and weight and then there is film coating (often red), as the name suggests it is a thin film over the seed providing fungal and bird repellent without bulk, this means 1kg of film coated grass seed actually contains 1kg of seed unlike those with a lime coating.
