Terra Novo Introduces EarthGuard Fusion™


Terra Novo Introduces Cost-Effective, Single-Package Reclamation Solution, EarthGuard Fusion™

Hydraulic Growth Medium & Mulch (HGM2) Product is a Fix-All for Poor Soil Conditions 

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (June 03, 2013) – Terra Novo, a leading manufacturer of erosion and sediment control products in Bakersfield, California, is introducing EarthGuard FUSION™ – a solution among a new classification of products known as hydraulic growth medium and mulch (HGM2). FUSION combines the capabilities of Terra Novo’s popular erosion control product, EarthGuard Fiber Matrix into a single package with the company’s high-quality topsoil replacement, EarthGuard ORGANIX, and the soil remedies of its fertilizer and growth stimulant products, EarthGuard ELIXIR. The unique combination of erosion-control with agricultural sciences make FUSION an ideal product for any re-vegetation application. 

EarthGuard FUSION offers a long-term, sustainable solution for sites experiencing difficulty with vegetation growth due to erosion, poor soil, weak plant growth or lack of organic matter. FUSION is effective for increasing vegetation on oil and gas sites as well as following landfill closures; and also supports post-fire reclamation, soil reclamation, and general re-vegetation.

“Terra Novo sets itself apart from competitors by speaking directly with the customer to understand their specific needs first-hand and then developing products that meet those needs; rather than simply creating a product and pushing it on the consumer,” says Scott Harrison, president of Terra Novo. “FUSION is the perfect example of this practice—offering the solution our customers have demanded by providing a highly effective erosion control product, topsoil replacement and soil remedy, all in a single package.”

Customers who purchase EarthGuard FUSION will see the combined benefits of three of Terra Novo’s top products:

  • EarthGuard Fiber Matrix is a pre-packaged, one-step application that combines EarthGuard® and wood/cellulose fiber. EarthGuard Fiber Matrix is chemically engineered to absorb the impact of raindrops also providing immediate dust control, erosion control and soil stabilization until permanent vegetation is established or construction has resumed. 
  • The second component of EarthGuard FUSION is Terra Novo’s hydraulically-applied topsoil replacement, EarthGuard ORGANIX, one of the company’s top-selling soil-building products. ORGANIX eliminates the high costs of hauling topsoil to a site and offers smaller contractors the opportunity to work on larger jobs that typically require more equipment. ORGANIX is the fastest, most economical way to achieve rapidly developing and sustainable topsoil. 
  • The addition of EarthGuard ELIXIR, Terra Novo’s line of fertilizers and growth stimulants, maximizes overall results. ELIXIR provides a combination of organically derived fertilizers, trace elements, growth stimulators and microorganisms that are essential for sustainable vegetation and combine to resolve soil deficiencies. An all-organic product line, ELIXIR stimulates biological activity and biodiversity, providing necessary nutrients to maximize plant-growth. 

Every Terra Novo product is specifically formulated by engineers and chemists with the end-user in mind. Farmers, land and home developers, oil and gas companies, forest services and departments of transportation utilize its unique product formulations to accomplish their goals affordably and without harming the environment. The company has completed successful projects for brands including the Federal Highway Administration, Chevron, Shell, Exxon Mobil, First Solar, the U.S. Forest Service and many well-known home builders. Case studies and performance tests support the products’ efficacy and attest to the company’s commitment to continual improvement.
