ASTM WK23037

    Work Item: ASTM WK23037 - New Test Method for Determination of Hydraulically Applied Erosion Control Products (HECPs) Ability to Encourage Seed Germination and Plant Growth Under Bench Scale Conditions

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.25.01 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Scope

    This test method covers guidelines, requirements, and procedures for evaluating the effect of hydraulically applied erosion control products (HECPs) on seed germination and vegetation enhancement. This test method will evaluate the effects of HECPs on seed germination in a controlled environment.

    Hydraulic mulches are produced from various material compositions, its important to understand the impact this has on seed germination and plant establishment. This test method will give project owners, Contractors and DOT officials the ability to evaluate and differentiate between technologies.
