Aero-Mulchers®, commonly known as Straw Blowers, or
Hay Blowers, mechanically shorten and quickly distribute
baled hay and straw fibers via a high-speed airstream.
The resulting blanket of fibers is often glued together
with a sprayed-on tackifier on steep slopes, while rolling
and flatter terrain can utilize the quicker and more effective
tractor-drawn Bowie Crimp-Disc.
Blown and crimped (or tacked) hay and straw is a highly
effective, low-cost BMP for controlling
erosion and sedimentation by quickly establishing vegetation.
