Our Erosion Control Prairie Seed Mix for Dry Soils has been specifically designed to provide rapid vegetative cover and long-term soil stabilization. We added 50% more prairie grass, plus plenty of fast-growing prairie flowers. Annual Rye nurse crop is included for rapid green-up. This mix provides quick cover in combination with deep-rooted perennials to hold the soil for decades to come.
Note: Always apply the appropriate grade of erosion mat on areas subject to water rosion. Seeded areas that are not subject to erosion will benefit from a cover of clean straw applied at a rate of 1.5 to 2.0 tons per acre. This helps retain soil moisture, increasing germination and plant survival. For well-drained sandy, gravelly and rocky soils.

All seed is Pure Live Seed (PLS). One PLS pound is defined as the weight of seed required to equal one pound of 100% pure, germinable seed. This is calculated based upon each seed lot's purity and germination tests. We track the ecotype origin of our seed inventory and provide this information at customer request.
