Plantago is an organic derivative of psyllium ( Plantago Ovata) whose adhesive properties are used as a soil tackifier. This finely ground muciliod coating of plantago seeds is used as an economical and cost effective tackifier for hydroseeding and erosion control applications. The product is all natural, non-toxic, biodegradable and hydrates rapidly. Plantago may be applied as a wet slurry to the surface of the soil. It dries to form a firm but re wettable membrane that binds soil particles together and permits germination and growth of seed.
