Hydroseeding is a mechanical method of applying seed, fertilizer, and mulch to land in one step.
Soil erosion resulting from logging road construction is a serious problem affecting physical stream water quality and road stability in Malaysia.
This study investigates slope re-turfing by hydroseeding to alleviate this problem.
Hydroseeding can apply to:
- Slope area
- Cut slope
- Slope erosion control
Hydroseeding is the method of embedding seeds onto the raw slope face through slurry which is sprayed from a hydroseeder (mobile slurry mixing tank with pump) which is usually truck mounted. The slurry usually comprises of water, grass seeds, fertilizer, soil stabilizer / glue and paper mulch.
Hydroseeding method is ideal for slopes with little or no access, steep slopes (usually cut slopes over 35 degrees) where normal turfing would be either very difficult or impossible, rocky or gravelly slopes with cracks, crevices and totally devoid of top soils. In addition, hydroseeding is a very fast and efficient method with 0.5-hectare coverage in an hour of spray.
It is highly recommended for the slope to be protected with biodegradable erosion control blanket after hydroseeding to enhance the highest possibility of the seed germination. Biodegradable erosion control blanket bond directly to the soil surface thus provide excellent prevention of grass seeds from being washed by rainfall, eaten by birds or run off velocity. In addition, biodegradable erosion control blanket also improves soil fertility and moisture retention besides providing protection for young grown grass.

NOTE: Hydroseeding should never be applied during, before or immediately following rainfall. Avoid application in high winds. Machines and tools should be flushed and cleaned with water immediately after use. All moving parts should be oiled and greased regularly.
Signal grass (“Brachiaria Decumbens”) is indigenous to Uganda and is currently being grown in many tropical to subtropical countries throughout the world. It forms a dense, high yielding sward which responds very well to additional nitrogen. It is a perennial grass with strong stoloniferous roof system and long trailing stems which will readily roof down from their nodes. Signal grass is highly recommended for slope erosion control and is widely used along most of our Malaysian highways including the North-South Highway.
