Abstract

Eleven mulch treatments were evaluated during the fall of 1966 on a 2:1 northeast-facing fill slope seeded to smooth bromegrass (Bromus inermis Leyss.). Mulch materials included wood cellulose fiber, excelsior, jute netting, emulsifiable asphalt used separately and as an anchorage for corncobs, woodchips, prairie hay, and fiberglass. Plots protected with an excelsior mat yielded the best seedling grass.

Eight mulch treatments were evaluated on a 2:1 east-facing fill slope during the fall of 1967. Mulch materials included an emulsifiable polymer, compost, wood cellulose, jute netting, excelsior, and asphalt-anchored mulches of excelsior, woodshavings, and bark dust. Plots protected with an excelsior mat or jute netting yielded the best seedling grass.
