notice the difference in root structures

Hydro Prod consists of a blend of vitamins, minerals, polymers and nutrients for a well balanced food source.

Hydro Prod when used with a mulch on newly seeded grass areas will retain moisture for a longer period than conventional hydro-seeding.

Trees dipped with Hydro Prod show a better root system than untreated trees. New seedlings (trees, shrubs, brush) with their roots dipped in Hydro Prod prior to planting in a natural environment, will have the luxury of nutrition and a moisture source available to them in all climates and conditions.

Hydro Prod is cost saving to the user in time, money and manpower making Hydro Prod a must when planting new trees or reclaiming watersheds.

Hydro Prod helps reduce soil erosion by creating larger root systems on plants. The larger the root system a plant has the more soil it binds and holds together.

  • Improved Grass Area
  • Cost Saving

    By Don Justice

    In April 1998, a Company by the name of Soil Spray Aid, Inc. of Moses Lake, Washington approached the Umatilla National Forest about a product they developed, that might be used in a reforestation program to treat seedlings. According to the Company, Hydro Prod, would be quite beneficial to use as a root dip agent. They contend this product provides a complete nutrient package that contains “growth promoting elements, polymers, trace elements, vitamins and minerals". In addition they state that this product (dry) has the ability to hold up to fifty times it’s weight in water. The Forest Service has expressed it's interest in trying this product on a test trial field this season. The Company agreed to donate 10 gallons to the Forest Service to test. 5 gallons of Hydro Prod was sent to the HEPPNER Ranger District and the other 5 gallons to the North Fork John Day Ranger District.

    Each seeding treated with Hydro Prod is being staked with a metal pin to be tracked for one year. On April 24, 1998 approximately seventy seedlings (Ponderosa Pine and Western Larch) were treated on the Heppner District Wheeler Point Fire Area. On May 12, 1998, 4 treated and 4 untreated seedlings were dug up to see if there was any difference in new growth after eighteen days of planting. Of the 4 treated seedlings 3 were Ponderosa Pine and 1 was Western Larch. The 3 treated pines did exhibit some new growth whereas the Larch did not. When the untreated were analyzed none showed any new growth at all. This is not to say that the untreated were not putting on new growth, but they seemed to be rather behind those treated. This area will be revisited again within the next few weeks to see if site conditions improved enough to stimulate new growth.
