    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the composition, physical requirements, and manufacturing methods of hydraulically applied wheat straw fiber mulches for re-vegetation, sediment, and erosion control. 1.2 The purpose of this specification is to provide a reference for describing and specifying wheat straw fiber mulch materials for hydraulic applications. 1.3 Units--The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are provided for information only. 1.4 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.

    This specification is needed to differentiate hydraulically applied wheat straw mulch for hydraulic planting.
