How is hydromulch applied?
Hydromulch can be applied in just one step by spraying the ground with a slurry of water, fertiliser, seeds and mulch. This is done on a
specially designed hydromulching truck or via aerial application when access is a challenge. In most cases, a hydromulching truck is
considered the best application method.
As part of this process, the truck agitates the thick slurry of water, seed, fertiliser, straw mulch and a binder or tackifier throughout
the mixing and application process, ensuring the seed fertiliser, fibres and binders are mixed evenly and remain in suspension and spray evenly onto the ground.
This application method works at a minimum rate of 2.5 tonnes per hectare, targeting 100 per cent soil-surface coverage and ensuring
that the applied seed is protected and the risk of erosion is minimised.
Hydromulching application equipment has the ability to spray the slurry over a distance of up to 100 metres, enabling effective
application on even the most difficult sites. The included polymer system ensures the hydromulch slurry adheres to even the steepest of
slopes, holding it there until the vegetation establishes.
