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
