Professional Erosion Control Seed Mixture

SLOPEMASTER is a seed mixture specifically designed for erosion control where rapid establishment is a necessity with little follow up maintenance. SLOPEMASTER features the durable white clover Durana which is a medium-leafed, intermediate type white clover containing as many as 97 stolons per sq. foot which will secure most erodable soils. Durana is a superior white clover that is persistent and will fixate up to 150 lbs of atmospheric nitrogen per acre per year. The Nitrogen fixation by Durana will provide enrichment to a stand of low maintenance cool & warm season turfgrass. Durana is durable and you can count on it to compliment a stand of tall fescue or bermuda with lespedeza to maintain a long stand life. SLOPEMASTER is also treated with Pennington’s exclusive GermMax technology for enhanced establishment.

Characteristics:

  • Extremely durable erosion control mixture
  • Aggressive growth to provide complete ground cover
  • Contains perennial seed that establish quickly and last for years
  • Durana White Clover establishes stoloniforus growth to hold soils in place
  • Durana White Clover fixates atmospheric Nitrogen for reduced fertilizer requirements

Where to plant:

Establishment:

SLOPEMASTER can be planted by drilling, broadcasting, or hydraulic seeding. Planting can be made throughout the year when mixed with companion grasses that are suitable with planting dates, i.e. tall fescue in the fall or bermudagrass in the spring. Planting depth should be no more than ¼ inch (6.35 mm) for many stand failures result from planting to deep. Liming to a pH of 6.0 and providing adequate potassium and phosphorus are necessary to ensure a productive stand. Soil testing is highly recommended.

Durana is a medium-leafed, intermediate type white clover containing high numbers of stolons per square foot, as many as 97 stolons per sq. foot, when compared to other white clovers. Durana white clover is highly persistent and is best used to enrich unimproved cool or warm season grasses for erosion control turfgrass. Durana is a superior white clover that is extremely persistent to provide an improvement to a stand of low maintenance turfgrass. Durana is durable and you can count on it to compete in a stand of tall fescue or bermudagrass to maintain a long stand life and fix Nitrogen to share with companion grasses. Durana will capture 100 lbs to 150 lbs of atmospheric nitrogen per acre per year.
