Hydro-seeding is advanced method of quickly applying water, seed and fertiliser to a large area. It is especially useful in uneven and difficult to access areas.
In many cases results are improved through the addition of a tackifier. This helps hold seeds in place during the germination phase. Water$ave Hydro-Tac is a stand-alone tackifier that can be used without the addition of mulch.
As well as reducing seed loss during wind or rain event, Hydro-Tac also reduces evaporation, improves water infiltration and improves the physical properties of soils. Its anionic properties allow small colloidal particles to bind together, reducing loss of top-soil and hard-panning.
Hydro-Tac is an anionic, linear polymer in powdered form. It is soluble in water and can be used with a marking dye.
It is non-toxic and biodegrades over time, with no bio-accumulation in the soil.
Add seed and fertiliser to water first (and mulch if required)
Add 1.5kg of Hydro-Tac per 1000l of water
Add the polymer powder slowly to avoid clumping (gel-blocking)
Agitate the solution for 15-30 minutes to allow the polymer to go into solution and become active
Spray slurry onto area to be treated
Knowing what type of soil you have can help in many ways including choosing the right plant for your soil. The type of soil you have can help determine which plants will be best suited to the area which will help increase their survival rates.
