stabilize the soil on any slope conditions to reduce or prevent
erosion. Soil specific polymer additions (in granular or liquid form)
can assist temporary or permanent grassing by binding the seed,
fertilizer, mulch, and soil together until the grass germinates.

photos show the application of the site-specific polymer using
hydroseeding equipment. The polyacrylamide was used on these sites
to control sediment runoff and prevent erosion on the slopes:
Application of polyacrylamide
to a slope covered with organic matting. The PAM is the final
additive in the hydroseed/mulch mixture that is sprayed onto the slope.
The second photo show the vegetation establishment 4 weeks later:
These photos are from a site
where there was poor vegetation establishment with the normal
hydroseeding application. It was decided to re-hydroseed the
slopes using the soil-specific polymer to aid the establishment of the
