Abstract

New resinous stabilizers for raw soil that will also allow water penetration for plant growth are now available. Some of these materials show pramise for control of wind or rain erosion previously possible only by a well established cover crop. New experimental formulas, found effective in the laboratory, along with others already on the market, are being field tested to determine their value in erosion control and water conservation.
