Significance and Use
5.1 This test method evaluates the effect of an RECP on seed germination and initial plant growth in a controlled environment.
5.2 The results of this test can be used to compare RECPs and other erosion control materials to determine which are the most effective at encouraging the growth of vegetation.
1.1 This test method covers guidelines, requirements, and procedures for evaluating the effect of Rolled Erosion Control Products (RECPs) on seed germination and vegetation enhancement.
1.2 This test method will evaluate the effects of RECPs on seed germination in a controlled environment.
1.3 This test method utilizes bench-scale testing procedures and shall not be interpreted as indicative of field performance.
1.4 This test method is not intended to replace full-scale simulation or field testing in acquisition of performance values that are required in the design of erosion control measures utilizing RECPs.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
