HydroStraw® HE All In 1 Guar Plus 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® HE All In 1 Guar Plus consists of heat and mechanically treated wheat straw fibers which are environmentally safe, biodegradable and produced from annually renewable materials combined with a non-toxic brown colorant as an application aid. The porous matrix of the wheat straw encourages water infiltration, enabling the new seedlings to easily pass thru the matrix. The combination of the wheat straw fibers together with our cross-linked high strength polymer binders provides effective erosion prevention and increased vegetation establishment.

HydroStraw HE All In 1 Guar Plus includes all the benefits of our HydroStraw Guar Plus plus 15% 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 mycorrhizae 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 from 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.
HydroStraw HE All In 1 Guar Plus requires no additional infield mixing, resulting in a more accurately mixed slurry and compliance to application specifications.
