Product Information

Vendor Hydrostraw, LLC
Representative Ron Edwards
Manufacturer Name Hydrostraw, LLC
Product Name All In One BFM
Product Description HydroStraw® All In 1 BFM addresses the biological, chemical, and physical requirements for stabilizing and restoring vegetation on disturbed soil sites, as well as controlling erosion during vegetation establishment. HydroStraw All In 1 includes all the benefits of our HydroStraw BFM plus 25% micronized natural fertilizers, biological inoculants and soil amendments which provide slow release balanced nutrients for the new vegetation and promote the growth of soil microbes. The biological inoculant system includes beneficial microbes and mycorrhiza fungi that increase the surface absorbing area of the roots 100 to 1,000 times. Beneficial bacteria are also added to jump start the microbial activity of the soil, as these microbes help the seedlings more efficiently absorb nutrients. Some of these bacteria help to release nitrogen, sulfur, phosphorus, and trace elements for soil organic matter, while others break down soil minerals and release potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium and iron. Still other bacterial species make and release natural plant growth hormones, which stimulate root growth. Even though microbes are invisible to the naked eye their effects are far reaching as it relates to restoring soil health.
Intended Use Erosion control mulch for hydraulic seeding on steep slopes and adverse conditions where Vegetation Establishment & Erosion Control required.
