Straw erosion control blankets are among the many types of rolled erosion control blankets (RECPs) available. They provide temporary protection for seed and soil from the erosive forces of wind and rain. Agricultural straw fibers are made into a blanket to aid in vegetation establishment of newly seeded, gentle slopes. This allows seeds to grow through the erosion blanket. "Single net straw" blankets, netting stitched to the topside of straw fibers, are cost-effective for many situations. "Double net straw" blankets, netting stitched to both the top and bottom sides of the straw fibers, provide additional protection.
