    Description

    PAM-12™ is a recycled office paper byproduct made into a spreadable mulch with added Water Soluble Polyacrylamide (WSPAM), a previously difficult polymer to apply. PAM-12 is extremely versatile and can be applied through several methods. In a field test, PAM-12 outperformed straw in every targeted performance area: erosion control, improving soil hydrophobicity, and plant establishment. ENCAP, LLC in Green Bay, WI, holds the patent to PAM-12.
