Bonterra Iberica offers Hydro-Mulch among its hydrosowing products. It is a compound of numerous vegetal fibres that once that are thrown by the hydrosower, together with the stabilizer, act like a fibrous layer that firmly maintains the seeds in contact to the soil. This technology is called Hydro-Blanket.
Hydro-Mulch, specially developed for its application in hydrosowing, offers a bigger coverage for the soil than the conventional mulches, making itself more effective against the erosive effects of the wind and the rain, maintaining the seeds in contact to the soil and restricting the leaching of other additives.
The product Hydro-Mulch developed by Bonterra Ibérica in collaboration with the main hydrosowers manufacturers, is easily biodegradable and absorbed by the plaints without leaving any waste, guarantees the maximum productivity, interacts easily and quickly with other additives and requires a minor water mixture.
Hydro–Mulch has been designed to treat three main areas:
- Protection of the soil substratum during the vegetation growing period.
- Seed protection and germination improvement.
- Easy application with productivity increase.
We would like to emphasize that the coloured version of our Hidro–Mulch acts as a marker that is used to standardize the application and, at the same time, to control the introduced concentrations as well as the treated areas.
Hidro–Mulch will become commercialized as a bunch of long wooden fibres, with or without colour, that are extracted from the fleshiest part of the wood. Its thermic treatment for the dehydration and the product development guarantees the elimination of pathogenic germs and fungus.
Hidro–Mulch is presented in 300 litre bullets; a ballet contains 32 bullets. The recommended dose has 175 – 230 g/m2 as average values.
