Abstract/Contents:SUMMARY: "Soil stabilizers are used when establishing green cover on bare ground without topsoil: they give the newly laid-out area temporary protection from erosion by wind and rain. A description is given here of how soil stabilizers with different physical and chemical characters act on the mechanical properties of the soil: the permeability of the subsoil and the erosion protection capacity are also described. The best products are those which permit an open soil structure and at the same time provide soil stabilization without film formation. These products include oxidatively drying polymer emulsions, because of the good penetrating power. Investigation of the effects of soil stabilizers on germination and plant growth shows clearly that soil stabilizers do not act as soil conditioners. At excessively high doses, all soil stabilizers act as growth inhibitors, and a few of them are even phytotoxic, but when applied in the right way satisfactory soil stabilizers have no effect on plant growth. These include products which can be processed as an emulsion and form an open network in the soil. By combining these soil stabilizers with certain organic fertilizers and mulching methods, improved growth can be achieved even under extreme site conditions and climatic conditions."
