Hydroseeding Mix and Method Of Application

HYDROSEEDING MIX & METHOD OF APPLICATION

(CAPACITY OF HYDROSEEDER – 1, 000 liters)

HYDROSEEDING MIX
  1. Pump water into hydroseeder to ¾ level.
  2. Free gear and start engine.
  3. Put in mulch (if paper mulch is used – 15 to 20 kg dry weight is recommended)
  4. Next add in 30 kg Soil Tackifier (R1187)
  5. Put in 8 to 10 kg grass seeds. You may add millet if you wish for fast establishment of greens/ vegitation.
  6. Add one bag (40-50 kg) of Bio-Super 1 fertilizer with the mixture.
  7. Finally top up with water.

METHOD OF APPLICATION
  • Before engaging the gear, the person who will do the spraying must hold tight the nozzle and have firm footing on stable ground as he will expect a strong back-kick the moment the slurry shoots out of the nozzle.
  • Do not shoot the slurry directly to the soil surface. Instead, it should be done in the form of raindrops in a uniform pattern. Ensure even coverage of slurry on soil surface. One machine load with proper application can cover approximately 600 to 700 m2.
  • Watering (also in the form of raindrops) on the hydroseeded area can start immediately the next day and must be continued daily in the initial stage to ensure speedy germination and growth. Light watering will not help much due to our hot climatic condition. Therefore, sufficient and proper watering must be done ensuring water seep into the soil yet avoiding overflow of water on the soil surface.

NOTE: Hydroseeding shall never be applied during, before or immediately following rainfall. Avoid application in high winds. Machines and tools should be flushed and clean with water immediately after use. All moving parts should be oiled and greased regularly.
