Application/Loading Procedures
A.Strictly comply with equipment manufacturer’s installation
instructions and recommendations.
G.Consult loading chart above to determine the number of bags to
be added for desired area and application rate.
B.
H.Mulch should be completely loaded before water level reaches
90% of the top of tank.
Measure and stake area to ensure proper application rates.
C. For maximum performance, apply in a two-step process*:
1. Apply fertilizer with specified prescriptive agronomic
formulations along with 50% of seed with a small amount
of mulch for visual metering.
2. Mix balance of seed and apply mulch at a rate of 50 pounds
per 100 gallons of water over freshly seeded surfaces. See
loading chart above and confirm loading rates with equipment
manufacturer. Do not leave seeded surfaces unprotected,
especially if precipitation is imminent.
D.Fill 1/3 of the hydroseeder with water. Turn pump on for
15 seconds and purge and pre-wet lines. Turn pump off.
E.Turn agitator on and load low density materials first (i.e. seed).
F.Continue slowly filling tank with water while loading mulch
into tank.
Additional Notes:
• For hose applications, 40 lb/100 gal is recommended.
I.Add fertilizer and top off with water.
J.Mix until all fiber is fully broken apart and hydrated (minimum
of 10 minutes—increase mixing time when applying in cold
conditions). This is very important to fully activate tackifiers and
to obtain proper viscosity.
K.Shut off recirculation valve to minimize potential for air to be
drawn into the slurry.
L.Slow down agitator and start applying with a 50-degree fan
tip nozzle.
M.Spray in opposing directions to achieve at least 75% soil coverage.
*Hydraulic mulch may be applied in a one-step process where all components
may be mixed together in single tank loads. Consult with manufacturer for
further details.
Visual Key for Proper Application
• Rough surfaces (rocky terrain, cat tracks, ripped
soils, etc.) may require additional product to achieve
a minimum of 75% coverage.
• Be sure to allow for residual material in tank on
subsequent applications.
