Abstract/Contents:Discusses sediment caused by erosion, stating that it is "the number one pollutant of U.S. [United States] waters." Examines potential erosion control products, including Pam-12, Lawn Starter Mulch and Lawn Kits. Explains that ENCAP (encapsulation) used organic water-soluble polymer (PAM) in a granule. States that "a magnetic attraction holds soil and fertilizers in place, while helping to establish seeds, improve water utilization and reduce hydrophobicity." Also discusses potential erosion control products introduced by North American Green of Evansville, Indiana, and Straw Works of Sacramento, California. Concludes that "there are lots of choices available to solve...erosion control problems."
