    What do you use in hydroseeding if I used organic materials?
    ICT's hydroseed mix, seed, and an organic fert or what?

    I've never hydroseeded before but thinking about it. I was thinking about getting a hydroseeder and also use it for tea.

    THanks!!

    WELL all depends on what you r trying to do
    hydroseeding is one thing
    tea is another
    if you use the hydroseeder to do tea you have to clean it well to get all the chunks and gwar out
    not unheard of but work none the less

    Hey Keegan
    I have seen outstanding results by adding 1 1/2 yards of screened compost (1/8 inch minus, any bigger and it will clog the unit) per 1000 gallons of water, add seed and spray away
    You can add our Hydro-seed product if you like, it is made for hydro-seed companies that are using a lot of high NPK fertilizer with their mix, you can reduce the fertilizer input by 50% to 75% by adding our product. The cost of our hydroseed product is very cheaper 0.003 cents per sq ft (three thousandth of a penny)

    A lot of folks that brew teas buy our 1-2-3 hydroseed product to add known microorganisms to their brew, that way they don't have to go out and buy bacteria, fungi and mycorrhizae, its all in the 1-2-3 hydroseed mix

    It accellerates germination, reduces water useage long term (mycorrhiza) and help with the long term health of the turf
