The AGgrow Filter Sock is a cost-effective Sediment Retention Device (SRD). This device stands alone as the only SRD on the market that offers certified sustainably grown Freedom® Giant Miscanthus biomass filter media encased in a polyester geotextile skin.

Residential Home Construction
AGgrow Filter Sock is a great alternative to conventional silt fence for construction sites with limited space and difficult ground conditions. Its round design allows easy access in and out of the job site. Delivery trucks and/or worker traffic won’t damage the wattle or prevent its performance like downed silt fence. Also, no trenching is required. When ground conditions make trenching difficult – use AGgrow Filter Sock. It’s design allows it to be set on top of the ground.
