Two hydro-seeding projects were recently completed for AEM participating farmers. The first site was located in the town of Walworth. We seeded about a half acre of swales and filter strips along agricultural fields. This area had a history of erosion problems, the seeding should help reduce erosion and filter sediment from runoff.
The second site we seeded was located in the towns of Galen and Rose. We hydro-seeded approximately 4500 linear feet of newly excavated drainage channel, which totaled about an acre and a half. The seeding will help stabilize the banks of the channel and reduce sediment transport downstream.
